Covered California Health Plans to Include Children’s Dental Next Year
KQED Radio

It was a big debate last summer. While children’s dental coverage is one of the Affordable Care Act’s 10 essential health benefits, the ACA gives states the flexibility to offer the coverage in a stand alone plan. Covered California first required insurers to include children’s dental, then told them to strip out the benefit, in favor of offering stand alone plans at an additional cost. Now the data is in. Less than one-third of enrolled children on Covered California through 2013 also has dental coverage.
