Editorial: Exchange Should Offer Kids’ Dental Care Coverage as Part of Comprehensive Plans
A Sacramento Bee editorial argues that the "Affordable Care Act provides an opportunity to improve children's access to dental care," if the state health insurance exchange "does things right." According to the editorial, Covered California only solicited bids for "stand-alone or bundled" children's dental plans. However, it states that "parents who need affordable access to dental coverage for kids ought to be able to access" a comprehensive health plan that includes pediatric dental care coverage "where subsidies are available."
