We work with Delta Dental of Washington to offer you dental coverage when paired with one of our 2017 direct individual plans. Both of the following options fulfill the federal mandate to provide pediatric dental coverage to anyone under age 19.
- An adult/family plan that includes dental coverage for those over age 19 and those under age 19. This plan is available for adults and families who purchase their medical plan direct from Kaiser Permanente.
- A pediatric-only plan that includes dental coverage only for those under age 19.
- This plan is only available if you purchase your medical plan direct from Kaiser Permanente.
- If you purchase your medical plan through Washington Healthplanfinder and are under age 19 or have dependents under age 19, you must purchase pediatric dental coverage there.
For Members Enrolling Direct With Kaiser Permanente
If you like your current medical plan and are not making a change during open enrollment — but want one of our dental plans — complete and submit the dental application (PDF).
If you want to select a new medical plan and want one of our dental plans, complete and submit the individual and family enrollment application (PDF).
You can buy pediatric dental coverage from another carrier. If you do this, you must submit two things to Kaiser Permanente within 60 days of health plan effective date: 1) the completed pediatric dental attestation and 2) proof of coverage from the alternate carrier.
How to Cancel Your Current Dental Plan
If you want to cancel your current dental coverage, contact Member Services.
You can cancel dental coverage anytime during the year if you are age 19 and older. You cannot begin coverage again until the next open enrollment or if you have a qualifying event.
