In the Marketplace, you can get dental coverage in a few different ways: as part of a health plan, by itself through a separate, stand-alone dental plan, or some opt for a dental discount program that can be purchased anytime and is separate from your health plans. You generally cannot purchase a Marketplace dental plan unless you are buying a health plan at the same time.
Health plans that include dental coverage
Dental coverage is included in some Marketplace health plans. You can see which plans include dental coverage when you compare plans at the time of your health plan purchase.
Separate, stand-alone dental plans
In some cases, stand-alone plans are offered. You can see them when you shop for plans in the Marketplace. If you choose a separate dental plan, you’ll pay a separate, additional premium.
Dental discount programs
Also known as dental savings plans, these plans are designed to save you money on dental care needs. Plan members generally save 10-70% on average on the typical costs of dental care and treatments. Many dental savings plans can include some basic vision coverage as well.
