dental coverage

Dental plans

We work with Delta Dental of Washington to offer you dental coverage when paired with one of our direct individual plans. Both of the following options fulfill the federal mandate to provide pediatric dental coverage to anyone under age 19.

The adult/family plan includes dental coverage for those over age 19 and those under age 19. This plan is available for adults and families who purchase their medical plan direct from Kaiser Permanente.

The pediatric-only plan includes dental coverage only for those under age 19.

These plans are available only if you purchase your medical plan direct from Kaiser Permanente.

If you purchase your medical plan through Washington Healthplanfinder and are under age 19 or have dependents under age 19, you must purchase pediatric dental coverage there.
