Rep. Lipps Applauds The Passage Of Mobile Dental Facilities Bill
This bill will allow greater access to proper oral health care
Posted November 06, 2019 by Majority Caucus

COLUMBUS—State Representative Scott Lipps (R-Franklin) today applauded the unanimous passage of his legislation, House Bill 203. This legislation will make the services provided by Mobile Dental Facilities (MDF’s) more effective in order to allow greater access to proper oral health care. Dental care is the number one unmet health care need in Ohio. These MDF’s provide access to uninsured and underinsured Ohio families and children.

In a continuous effort to lower health care costs and administrative burden, Representative Lipps introduced HB 203 to limit the likelihood of out of pocket costs for patients. This bill will allow medical records of patients who are serviced at Mobile Dental Facilities to transfer to a dentist office. Ensuring these records follow the patient makes certain they receive effective follow up care, without the possibility of paying for a service they already received at a Mobile Dental Facility.

“This simple bill will effect a massive change,” said Lipps. “Our office has been focused on lowering health care costs and clarifying the purposefully confusing and burdensome healthcare system. This bill does just that.”

The bill will now go to the Senate for further consideration.
