Question: I have health insurance through my employer, and although it offers dental benefits, it is limited in coverage of dental care services. Can I buy another individual dental plan and use that instead? 

Answer: If you have health insurance through your employer that includes dental benefits but is limited in coverage for dental care services, consider purchasing an individual dental plan. You also may be able to coordinate benefits. It will depend on what you have currently and if you are going to a dentist who will coordinate dual plans. It is, however, worth asking about at your dental office.
