health insurance marketplace, Access
Health CT, is slated to offer adult stand-alone dental plans in 2015.
Currently adults wanting dental insurance through Access Health CT are routed
to a website operated by Anthem
Blue Cross and Blue Shield, which offers stand-alone dental plans that meet
the marketplace’s criteria for coverage.
Health CT recently solicited
applications from dental insurance issuers to market and sell stand-alone dental plans through the Access Health CT marketplaces (both small
business and individual) beginning on November 15, 2014, with active coverage
beginning on January 1, 2015, for all plans entered into by December 15, 2014.
However, to date, Access Health CT has not received any responses from
interested dental insurance issuers.
