Dental Coverage and Health Insurance Exchanges

Interactive Map: Guardian Dental Plans By State Exchange

When it comes to dental coverage and health insurance exchanges, consider standalone dental benefits offered on the small business health insurance marketplace (SHOP). By keeping your medical and dental plans separate, your dental benefits can be more robust and offer greater savings. For example, some medical plans require that you pay a higher amount out-of-pocket before your dental benefits are covered at 100%.

A bright smile takes more than just brushing and flossing alone. Dentists can detect problems early on before they become more serious – and costly. That’s why dental insurance makes sense – it not only pays for preventive care that can keep you and your family healthy, but it also helps pay for more extensive, costly and often unexpected expenses – such as fillings, crowns, and root canals.
