Embedded Children’s Dental Coverage

Embedded children’s dental benefits are automatically included in the health plans offered through Covered California.

Embedded Children’s Dental Plan Details You Need to Know

  • Preventive and diagnostic services, such as X-rays, exams, cleanings and sealants, are free and not subject to the medical deductible.
  • Costs for fillings, root canals and crowns are shared by the consumer and the dental plan. However, there is no out-of-pocket maximum specific to children’s dental costs, so the total out-of-pocket costs for a child’s dental care can accumulate to the health plan’s maximum out-of-pocket limit ($10,800 for the standard Silver plan in 2017).
  • In a dental health maintenance organization (HMO) plan, costs for dental work performed by dental providers outside the plan’s network are not covered.
  • Many member costs for covered services are plan-specific and must be researched individually.
