Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues…

I can’t afford the cost of a stand-alone dental plan in addition to buying major medical health insurance. Will I owe a penalty for not having Minimum Essential Coverage if I don’t buy the separate dental plan?

No. You do not need to have pediatric dental coverage to avoid the penalty.
