Notes on Methodology

The rates above represent the % of adult beneficiaries who met their dental benefit cap for that calendar year. 

Numerator – Adults aged 21 and older with dental claims that reached the cap during the calendar year. In 2020 the cap was raised from $510 to $1,000 per calendar year.

Denominator – Adults aged 21 and older with any dental services during the calendar year.

Story Behind the Curve

In January of 2020, the adult annual cap on expenditures increased from $510-$1,000 per calendar year as a result of Act 72.

During 2020, dental offices were closed for several months due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. These changes led to a decline in the number of adults reaching the annual cap on expenditures.
