HHS released draft guidance on qualified health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act that includes guidance on the certification of stand-alone dental plans, multi-state plans, CO-OP plans, agents and brokers, consumer support, premium payments and the QHP application process. Qualified pediatric dental plans must limit annual cost-sharing to $1,000 or less. Insurers cannot limit annual or lifetime benefits in pediatric dental coverage required as part of essential health benefits.
