Dental Care Won't Be Covered In Vt. Health Plan - VPR News

The Green Mountain Care Board has voted not to include adult dental services as part of the basic benefit package that will be offered to Vermonters though the Health Care Exchange in 2014.

Under the federal Affordable Care Act, states must include dental services for children in their basic benefit package but the law also stipulates that if a state includes adult dental care in the package, the state must pay the full cost of providing this service.

It's estimated that roughly 100,000 Vermonters will initially get their health insurance through the exchange and the cost of adding adult dental services is around $20 million a year.
