Important Insurance Information for Children under the Affordable Care Act
Starting in 2014 it is possible to purchase Children’s Dental Insurance as a “stand alone” policy for just your child or children through the State of California Health Care Exchange. In our area there are two types of dental insurance policies being offered: a Dental Preferred Provider Organization (DPPO) and a Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DHMO). Both types of policies are available from several insurance companies.
You will want to select a DPPO insurance plan so that you can choose the dentist you want to see, have much more flexibility in treatment options and a better dental experience for your child. We have created a primer of Covered CA’s Children’s Dental Plan Insurance Rates for your convenience.
The most important points to keep in mind as you are choosing a plan include the following:
- If a DHMO is selected it is likely you will be assigned a dentist your child must see, employed by a large corporation, and who may have questionable quality and quantity of training with minimal practice experience.
- Any DPPO plan will work at both our kids dentist offices.
- At the Folsom children’s dentist office, we are Preferred Providers for Anthem and Blue Shield.
- At the Sacramento pediatric dentistry office, The Tooth Station is a Preferred Provider for Anthem, Blue Shield and Premier Access.
- The DPPO prices range from $20.90 to $37.91 per month per person. Families with children who have many dental needs will likely find it worthwhile to select the 85% option on the DPPO plans offered.
