Not sure which plan to choose? 

  • HMO plans generally have lower monthly premiums and lower out-of-pocket costs for services compared with PPO plans. However, your choice in dentists is more limited.
  • PPO plans generally have higher monthly premiums and higher out-of-pocket costs for services compared with HMO plans. However, PPO plans offer a larger selection of dentists to choose from. 
  • The Family Dental PPO plan and Family Dental HMO plan are only available through Covered California. You must be enrolled in a medical plan through Covered California to qualify. 

You can even add a vision plan for as little as $6.90 per month to round out your coverage.
