Covered California Board


 The Covered California Board met last week to discuss its plans for offering dental benefits in 2015 and beyond.   The Board has been debating the plan structure (whether the dental benefit should be offered by a health plan or by a dental plan) and the types of dental benefits to offer (pediatric and adult dental benefits or just pediatric). After much discussion last week, the board’s direction to its staff is to allow health plans offering the dental benefit as well as standalone dental plans for children in the individual market starting in 2015, to begin to offer a full range of options in the small business (SHOP) market in 2015, and to begin offering adult supplemental dental benefits to both individuals and small businesses no later than 2016.
