How do I purchase dental coverage?

Some plans sold through the Marketplace offer dental coverage for children (under 18 years of age). In addition, the Marketplace also offers stand-alone dental plans (health plans that only include dental benefits) that cover either children only, or children and adults. Just like with a health plan, you can purchase dental coverage during an Open Enrollment Period or Special Enrollment period. You do not need to have purchased a medical plan through the Marketplace in order to purchase a stand-alone dental plan.
