If you’re confused about the Affordable Health Care Act—also known as the ACA, ObamaCare, heathcare.gov, or the insurance Marketplace - and how it impacts the costs associated with dental care, you’ve come to the right place.
:DentalPlans is your one-stop resource for all things dental, from our savings plan offerings to providing the information that you need to make the best choices about your dental health.
Since the ACA is so complex, we’ve created an information center with news, fact sheets for parents, adults, seniors, caregivers, self-employed people and small business owners. You can browse the most frequently asked questions (and answers) about ACA, and access critical information on dental health and the most affordable ways to access the care that you and your loved ones need.
However, if you are a first-time buyer or are changing your plan, and want coverage to begin by January 1, 2017, you must enroll by December 15, 2016.
Even if you are happy with your existing coverage through the Federal or state Marketplaces, you should review your plan and any other available options during the Open Enrollment period. Premiums are set to rise for unsubsidized plans by an average 25% across the nation, and many insurance providers have left the Marketplace. You may need or want to switch your coverage.
With the rising cost of premiums, and the notable lack of dental coverage options for adults under Obamacare, it can make sense to explore other options for reducing dental costs.
You can join a Dental Savings Plan at any time throughout the year, and save 10%-60% on dental care costs. Unlike traditional dental insurance, Dental Savings Plans do not have spending caps, deductibles and exclusions for pre-existing conditions or waiting periods (most plans activate within 72 hours, or sooner).
And if you’re struggling to meet out-of-pocket costs, you’ll be happy to know that many of the plans offered by :DentalPlans also include savings on general healthcare needs, including vision and hearing services, prescriptions, chiropractic, and more. Our telemedicine plan includes free consultations with doctors who can diagnose, treat and prescribe medication for common ailments and conditions.
