California exchange sets dental menu

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Covered California will start off offering small-group, child-only dental coverage from seven carriers.

Managers of California’s public exchange said the small-group dental menu will include products from the giants, including Blue Shield of California, Delta Dental, Guardian and MetLife.

Another big player, WellPoint’s Anthem unit, will sell child-only dental coverage through the individual exchange but not the small-group one.

Rates begin at $8 per child per month.

In other exchange news, the CaliforniaChoice private exchange — one of the first big, successful private exchanges — insists its plan menu will beat the Covered California menu.

The Word & Brown unit that runs the exchange says its exchange will offer plans from two plans missing from the Covered California menu — Aetna and Anthem.

The company also says that, unlike the public exchange, its exchange will offer vision, chiropractic and life plans.
