Consumers with auto insurance plans that cover dental coverage, or dentists, may be more at risk for a costly repair or other medical costs in the event of a car accident.
However, consumers with other dental plans that do not cover dental care, or doctors, may get a break.
According to data from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, consumers who are covered by auto insurance coverage, including dental, are more likely to be able to get a replacement or repaired vehicle in the case of an accident.
“Dental insurance is one of the most affordable forms of health insurance,” said Jessica Buehler, executive director of the National Insurance Association.
“It is a great way to protect your health care expenses.
Dental insurance protects people who do not have dental insurance but have dental work that is needed to maintain a healthy appearance.”
Insurance companies are also offering dental insurance plans with similar policies for 2017 and 2018.
For 2017, the national average premium was $8,958.
That is $6,957 lower than the average premium for 2016.
However the 2017 rate has risen since the start of 2018.
The average annual deductible in 2018 is $1,200, up from $1.4 million in 2017.
However if you do not qualify for any dental insurance coverage in 2017, you will still pay $1 per month.
