PLANTATION, Fla., February 24, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Solstice dental plans will be available to individuals and families in certain markets during the 2021 ACA Special Enrollment Period (SEP), including the unique open access dental EPO plan. The SEP, in accordance with the recent Executive Order, is in effect from Feb. 15, 2021, to May 15, 2021, to support those who have lost healthcare coverage during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
During this time, individuals and families in Arizona, Florida, and New York can select a Solstice dental plan when enrolling in health insurance coverage on the Federally Facilitated Marketplace (www.healthcare.gov) or the NY State of Health marketplace for New York residents.
Solstice dental plans are also available on a standalone basis (can be purchased alone without enrolling in a health insurance plan) at www.solsticecare.com to consumers in Arizona, Florida, and New York.
The plans available during the SEP include Solstice's open access dental EPO plans. These plans use their open access network to bring individuals and families increased flexibility and access to care.
"The SEP makes healthcare more accessible and effective for individuals and families during the COVID-19 pandemic. Along those lines, our dental plans offer families cost-effective coverage and the ability to see any network general dentist to access the care they need when they need it," said Brian Correia, Solstice's Vice President of Sales and Account Management.
Solstice's open access network offers clients:
- No dentist assignments or office rosters - see any in-network primary dentist, any time.
- Over 50,000 access points in 30+ states
- No waiting periods, deductibles, or maximums
In line with the ACA's commitment to making pediatric and family care accessible and affordable, Solstice's dental plans are specifically designed with families in mind. The plans available through the ACA marketplaces and solsticecare.com include:
- Orthodontic coverage for children and adults
- Pediatric dentist coverage until age 16
