What’s happening with dental insurance?
The Guardian is reporting that dental insurance is going down in some US cities.
The company that runs the coverage said on Wednesday that the numbers were low and that the insurance rate in New York was $5,500 per year, while in Boston it was $12,500.
The Guardian also reports that the average dental insurance policy will be $11,200 in 2018.
The company added that the new dental plan offers the highest quality coverage and that coverage in 2018 is the best of any coverage available.
“Dental care is not just about the treatment,” it said in a statement.
“It is also about the right to protect and to thrive.
We are proud of our history and our ability to provide high quality care to all of our customers.
We appreciate your support of our company and will continue to offer you a top-notch service.”
Dental insurance has been in the news recently due to the Trump administration’s attempt to eliminate it.
Trump’s administration has proposed a $7,500 annual cap on coverage for those under 65 and a $3,000 cap for people over 65.
A number of states have raised their limits on coverage to make the program more affordable for younger people.
