Dental & Health Care Reform

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires Americans to purchase health coverage in 2014 and thereafter or pay a fine. Health coverage includes medical coverage offered through large employers or public programs. For the small group and individual market and Exchanges, the ACA sets a specific group of benefits, i.e. Essential Health Benefits (EHB) as health coverage. Children's dental services are part of EHB, but this coverage is only required for small employers and individuals purchasing health coverage. To learn more, click here.
