Healthy teeth and gums are important for you and your family. Dental disease can affect your overall health, so it is important that you and your family see a dentist regularly.
The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) requires that the new health insurance exchanges offer dental plans for your children. Most state marketplaces will offer dental coverage for adults, although the new act does not require dental coverage for adults.
Visit healthcare.gov for more information on dental insurance options.
Even if you choose not to purchase a plan, you can still visit a dentist of your choice. Dr. Jeanne Taylor accepts most PPO insurance plans. Appointments with Dr. Taylor are usually available within two (2) weeks. Dr. Taylor is also available for emergencies on most days.
Some questions to consider when purchasing dental insurance are:
- Can I choose my own dentist?
- What is the monthly cost?
- Is there an annual limit?
- How soon can I get an appointment?
- What will be covered?
