Every year, HPI 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.
