The statements regarding REQUIRED dental insurance for children under 18 is very convoluted!
Is a parent required to provide dental insurance coverage for a child under 18 years of age?
I recognize that some plans offer it as a benefit…my question is related to the requirement of it being absolute or selective.
Great question. You don't have to choose the dental plan, but it must be offered by the insurer to children under 18. We'll make sure that information is more clear on our ObamaCare and Dental page.
Bottom line: You do not have to get dental coverage for children under 18.
