All plans offered to children must include dental coverage as an essential benefit. This means if you’re getting coverage for someone 18 or younger, dental coverage must be available as part of a health plan or as a stand-alone plan. While it must be available to you, you don’t have to buy it.
Rejecting child dental coverage won’t result in your child not having minimum essential coverage, and you won’t pay the penalty.
