Having dental insurance protects not only your oral health but also your overall health. Regular dental visits and preventive care take care of small problems before they become big ones. Pediatric and adult coverage is available through Your Health Idaho. Enrolling in dental insurance helps keep your and your family’s smile protected.
Dental coverage for children is considered an essential health benefit, which means if you receive a tax credit, it can be applied to the plan premium. It is offered two ways: as part of your health insurance plan or available as a stand-alone one. While dental coverage for children must be available to you, you are not required to buy it.
Dental coverage is not considered an essential health benefit for adults and is offered separately from health insurance plans. If you receive a tax credit, it cannot be applied to your dental premium.
