Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has posted the results of our survey of dental plans on intent to offer on Exchanges in Plan Year 2016. The notice
includes charts on the number of dental issuers in each state intending
to offer standalone dental plans (SADPs) in individual and SHOP
marketplaces. This survey was separately compiled and forwarded to CCIIO
by NADP and DDPA. NADP did not receive survey responses from all 2015
Exchange participants.

The notice concludes: “Given
that there is at least one issuer planning to offer SADPs in either the
individual or small business markets statewide, we believe that HHS can
reasonably expect there to be sufficient SADP coverage to permit QHPs
in the FFM in these states to omit the pediatric dental EHB if they
choose to do so
