Every year, the Health Policy Institute analyzes all dental coverage options on HealthCare.gov. In this webinar, we presented findings on premium trends over time, dental coverage within medical plans, and the take-up rate of dental coverage in all states. In particular, we presented a groundbreaking study published in Pediatrics that compares financial outlays for children’s dental care when dental coverage is obtained via a medical plan versus a dental-only plan. We discussed policy recommendations stemming from the findings.
