A new report suggests that dentists have found a way to see more Medicaid patients without increasing waiting times for their existing patients. They do so by relying more on dental hygienists. What lessons might doctors – dealing with an influx of new patients under the ACA – learn from dentists, and what are the limits in trying to copy that approach? Plus, Northwestern University football players are scheduled to vote today on whether they want to be represented by a union. The National Labor Relations Board ruled in February that Northwestern's football players on athletic scholarships are university employees, setting the stage for the election.
