Health Insurance Resources
Securing the right health insurance for you and your family can be challenging. Fortunately, ADA members have options. Many state dental associations — listed below — offer health insurance options. We encourage you to begin by investigating your state option:
|State Dental Associations Offering Health Insurance Resources|
|Kentucky||North Carolina||West Virginia|
NOTE: A national plan is not available under the new ACA law. ACA compliant health plans in a state are available to all residents in that state. Your state dental association may have options available to you that you will not find on your health care exchange or in the private marketplace. For this reason, we recommend you begin your health insurance search by exploring options offered through your state dental association.
