Here is an article that is important for people who are shopping around for a dental plan via their state’s exchange. According to the article, the exchanges vary from state to state in terms of what they offer and how they offer their dental plans. Some exchanges offer dental plans conveniently included with medical plans, or as stand-alone plans. However, some online exchanges make it difficult to find the right dental plan for you. The best thing to do is to try and talk to a representative in your area to make sure you’re able to find the right dental plan for you and your family.
Also, it was previously believed that under the ACA that all children would have some sort of dental coverage automatically. This is not necessarily true in all states. Again, please check with your area’s representative to find out more information regarding the health plans you plan on signing up for to make sure you’re getting the coverage you need.
