Covered California hopes to have embedded pediatric dental plans by 2015
Sacramento Business Journal

The board at Covered California directed staff Thursday to work with “deliberate speed” to draft a recommendation by the end of the year for how to make embedded pediatric dental benefits available no later than 2015. But the board did not direct staff to solicit bids for embedded plans for 2014. This action makes it unlikely consumers will be able to buy coverage for pediatric dental care as part of their health plan when the new state health benefits exchange kicks off next year.
