Connecticut’s 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.

Access 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.
