Good oral health is vital for good general health. Starting kids early on the track of taking care of their teeth and visiting the dentist regularly lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits.
The importance of dental health to general health was reinforced by the new rules for the Affordable Care Act. That’s right! Children’s dental care has taken center stage as an essential benefit in a wide variety of health insurance plans.
Are you confused about whether you can still enroll in a health plan to get your kids the dental coverage they need? You can! But only until March 31st.
If you don’t enroll in a health insurance plan by March 31, you will not be able to enroll until next winter! Don’t miss your chance to get the coverage you need.
Worried about paying for health insurance? Check out whether you’re eligible for tax credits to help pay for it. You might even qualify to have the entire premium covered. To get the tax credits, you have to apply for coverage through Connect for Health Colorado, Colorado’s Exchange.
