Does dental and vision count as health insurance?

No, Dental and Vision Insurance do not count as health insurance for the Affordable Care Act requirements. The full list of acceptable forms of Health Insurance can be found in this link: https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/4263876


Also excluded from qualifying as Health Insurance Coverage per the Healthcare.gov website (link: https://www.healthcare.gov/fees/plans-that-count-as-coverage/:(

Health plans that don't count as coverage

Some products that help pay for medical services don't qualify. If you have only this kind of product, you may have to pay the fee. Examples include:

  • Coverage only for vision care or dental care
  • Workers' compensation
  • Coverage only for a specific disease or condition
  • Plans that offer only discounts on medical services


In terms of Itemized Deductions, you can deduct Dental and Vision expenses on your tax return if you qualify for itemizing, please see the rules for this deduction in this link: https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3301457
