If you or a family member isn’t getting dental insurance through an employer you have to go to the marketplace to find a policy. If you already have a health insurance policy, will that interfere with your purchase of dental insurance? Do you have to purchase dental with regular health insurance, or can you purchase a dental plan by itself?
If you live in Lakewood, CO and need dental insurance, you actually have a choice as to how you decide to purchase it. At Colling Insurance Services Inc., we can help you find a plan that works with what you already have, or we can help you find a whole new plan.
If your health plan includes dental, you will pay one premium to get all the services offered by your comprehensive plan. If you choose a stand-alone policy, you will have two different premiums. You can even choose dental coverage at a completely different company than the one one that services your health insurance.
Dental insurance is an essential benefit for children, but not adults, so health insurance plans must offer coverage to minors either as part of a comprehensive plan or as a stand-alone plan. Sadly, dental insurance isn’t considered essential for adults.
When choosing your plan, you will probably have to choose a higher premium with lower copayments and deductibles or a lower premium with higher copayments and deductibles. Think about whether you want to pay less every month and then pay more for services.
