The National Association of Dental Plans is spending more than $1 million on a campaign to change a provision in the health care law it says will require some people to buy duplicative dental coverage.
The dental benefits trade organization has hired lobbying firm Brown Rudnick and public affairs firm Story Partners to help convince the Obama administration to fix the problem by the end of the year. The campaign, which began during the 2009 health care reform debate, will surpass the $1 million mark by the end of the year.
The trade group will release a 92-page white paper
tomorrow and plans to meet with officials from the Department of Health and Human Services
to go through the proposal. It has already met with HHS officials twice in the past month.
