Additional info about the Massachusetts exchange:
I called the hotline yesterday, inquiring about the dental plans
. The rep said they are still being finalized and will be up in the next few weeks. Some of the health plans then will have dental plans attached to them, for say "$30 extra dollars" (an example that he gave). OR, you can buy health and dental separately, but it would likely be cheaper to buy them together.
Also, if a person signs up for a health insurance plan today, then realizes later they want a different plan (or sees the new dental-enhanced plans), they can switch
as long as it is before December 23rd
, and they haven't paid their first insurance premium check.
Also, here is a link that gives the list of health and dental plan summaries
, without having to go through the Question and Answer process --> HERE
It was easy to reach a person on the phone - no waiting. So I encourage people in Mass to call if needed.
