The Brazilian Dental Association (ABO) warns of the consequences of implementing the Normative Resolution No. 211, published by the National Health Agency (ANS) on 12 January this year in the Official Gazette said the determination, from June 7 this year, health plans will have to provide 70 new medical and dental coverage to its nearly 44 million beneficiaries. The resolution is valid for contracts signed from January 2, 1999.

For ABO, although at first seems to benefit the population, the measure can bring bad consequences. With the expansion of the list of minimum procedures, tuition fees of the most basic plans should increase, thereby preventing many users of Class C and D continue to have access to this service, said the president's national entity, Newton Miranda de Carvalho.

The ruling also highlights the value that the dentist receives the plan will still lagged, but he has to carry out from now on procedures which are more expensive, as the prosthesis. With that, the professional work discouraged and may refuse to perform certain procedures, or to abandon the plan.

Besides new procedures, new rules increase customer service forcing eg coverage by plans collectives occupational accidents and procedures health ocupacional. Also gets determined coverage integral with medicines and all necessary materials where operators offer homecare alternatively to hospitalization regardless forecasting contractual.
