Dental care is an important part of your overall health. Enroll in a dental-only plan or add dental when you buy a health plan.
When to buy a dental plan
You can buy a dental-only plan or a health plan that includes dental on Maryland Health Connection during open enrollment Nov. 1 to Jan. 15. Certain life events qualify you to enroll in a dental plan outside of open enrollment.
If you qualify, you may enroll in Medicaid any time of year. Some managed care organizations (MCOs) offer limited dental coverage for adults 21 and older.
Check with your dentist to see what plans they accept before you enroll. The dental insurance companies available through Maryland Health Connection are:
- Dominion National
- Delta Dental
- DeltaCare USA/ Alpha Dental
- CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield
Dental plans for children
All of our health plans include dental services for children. We also offer dental plans for children who are not enrolled in a health plan through Maryland Health Connection.
