Dental coverage in Health Insurance
Individuals can buy dental insurance as a standalone plan or as part of a health insurance program. With standalone plans, you pay a separate premium, in addition to your health insurance. Some health insurance policies include dental insurance in a single plan.
Dental Insurance Costs
There are two types of dental plans based on costs.
High coverage plans have higher premiums and lower out-of-pocket costs like copayments and deductibles. If you use the plan frequently, this may be more advantageous.
Low coverage plans cost less each month but have higher copays and deductibles.
You can find information about each plan's coverage, costs, copayments deductibles, and services on AARDY Health Insurance Market.
Adult vs. Child Dental Insurance
Dental coverage for children is an essential health benefit but not mandatory. The law only requires that insurers make dental insurance available. It does not obligate you to buy the insurance.
For children 18 or younger, the policy must offer dental coverage for the child as part of the policy or a standalone plan.
However, the law does not deem dental coverage essential for adults. It does not require insurers to offer adult dental coverage as part of the health care plan.
