Covered California Offers New Dental Plans

Covered California is offering new family dental plans to consumers who enroll in health insurance coverage in 2015. All individual health insurance plans sold through the Covered California exchange will include pediatric dental benefits for members younger than 19.

All children enrolled in Covered California will have dental coverage embedded in their comprehensive health plan, Covered California Executive Director Peter V. Lee said. They will be getting better coverage and more for their money. The family dental plan will offer adults the option of receiving dental coverage outside the general health plans at an additional cost. Some consumers also may be drawn to family dental plans if a provider they prefer for their child is not offered in their embedded coverage.

The optional stand-alone family dental plans, which offer coverage for adults will be added in early 2015. Covered California will offer dental health maintenance organization (DHMO) and dental preferred provider organization (DPPO) plans, giving consumers a choice in the type of plan that will work best for them.

There is no financial help available for the optional adult dental benefits. There is no requirement to enroll children in a family dental plan. The family dental plan, which is optional, is primarily for adults who did not have coverage in 2014. Families should keep in mind that adding their children to a family dental plan will be more expensive than the same dental services they already get in their standard health insurance plan. The most likely reason to enroll a child in the family dental plan is to use a dental provider who is not offered through their embedded coverage. For more information,
