Question: Is dental coverage included in Covered California plans?
Answer: Children’s (through age 18) dental coverage is included as part of all health insurance plans sold through Covered California. This is known as “embedded children’s dental coverage.” Embedded children’s dental coverage is part of all health insurance plans sold through Covered California, so no additional enrollment is needed to receive children’s dental benefits if you already have a health insurance plan through Covered California. The dental benefits for children are part of the coverage you have purchased.
Optional adult dental benefits are also available through family dental plans. All plans include free preventive and diagnostic care, like cleanings, X-rays and exams. Family dental plans are offered during the renewal period, but you must purchase a health plan through Covered California in order to be eligible.
