News: AAOMS Supports Introduction of the ’Treatment of Children’s Deformities Act of 2005’
  
ROSEMONT, Ill., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons applauds the bi-partisan coalition of Congressional members who have taken a stand for thousands of young patients in their home states and the U.S. who suffer from severe skeletal facial defects by introducing the "Treatment of Children’s Deformities Act of 2005 (H.R. 1000/S. 1132)."

ROSEMONT, Ill., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons applauds the bi-partisan coalition of Congressional members who have taken a stand for thousands of young patients in their home states and the U.S. who suffer from severe skeletal facial defects by introducing the "Treatment of Children’s Deformities Act of 2005 (H.R. 1000/S. 1132)."

H.R. 1000 and S. 1132 would amend the Public Health Service Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to require insurance companies that offer coverage for medically necessary surgery to cover reconstructive surgical procedures for children through the age of 21.

The Treatment of Children’s Deformities Act of 2005 was first introduced in the House this spring by Rep. Sue Kelly (R-NY), and co-sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY). It has 11 co-sponsors to date. The Senate companion bill was introduced last month by Senators Norm Coleman (R-MN), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mike DeWine (R-OH), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Thad Cochran (R-MS), David Vitter (R-LA), Evan Bayh (D-IN) and Gordon Smith (D-OR).

SB 1132 and HR 1000 reflect the American Medical Association’s definition of reconstructive surgery as "surgery performed on abnormal structures of the body." It would require insurance coverage for reconstructive surgeries for children age 21 and under. Covered services would include "procedures that are generally performed to improve function, but may also be performed to approximate a normal appearance that are performed on abnormal structures of the body..." Cosmetic surgery performed to reshape normal structures of the body to improve appearance or self-esteem would not be included within the term "reconstructive surgeries."

The legislation was drafted in response to the increasing number of insurance companies that are denying access to reconstructive surgery for children with craniofacial deformities because they deem the treatment to be "cosmetic" and not medically necessary.

"I’ve seen before and after surgery photographs of children born with deformities and it is heart-wrenching, especially when they cannot afford to get the reconstructive surgery or treatment they need to lead healthy and happy lives," said Coleman. "This common sense legislation helps ensure that children and their families can afford the surgical care they need when they need it."

The impact of denial of treatment is significant. According to the Surgeon General’s September 2000 report, Oral Health in America, craniofacial anomalies affect an estimated one in 600 children every year in America. The most widely known craniofacial conditions are cleft lip and palate. The health consequences of craniofacial disorders can be devastating. All craniofacial features (including the mouth, jaws, teeth, and nose) function interdependently and damage to one area often has major effects on one or more other features. Trauma or disorders affecting the craniofacial region are all the more devastating because a "normal" appearance is often critical to a positive, healthy view of one’s identity.

The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the professional organization representing more than 7,000 oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the United States, supports its members’ ability to practice their specialty through education, research, and advocacy. AAOMS members comply with rigorous continuing education requirements and submit to periodic office examinations, ensuring the public that all office procedures and personnel meet stringent national standards.
