Sacramento Bee

Board members of the California Health Benefit Exchange voted Thursday to delay soliciting bids for medical plans that include pediatric dental care until next year.

Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, has said it will offer five stand-alone pediatric dental plans for 2014 as well as what’s called a “bundled” plan in which insurers pair a stand-alone dental plan with a medical plan.
