The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in its latest budget blueprint that the Affordable Care Act will cost $4.2 trillion over 10 years.
That means the cost of covering dental care for all Americans could rise by $1,200 a year, or $4,260 per person, the Congressional Budget Office said.
The agency says the cost will likely continue to increase as the ACA continues to become law.
The cost of dental care will continue to rise, the CBO said in a report.
Dental insurance premiums for adults who don’t qualify for subsidies are expected to average $7,000 a year.
This is about twice the average premium in the past five years, and the CBO expects it to grow at a rate of 6.6 percent over the next decade.
The cost of this premium increase will likely increase significantly for people in high-cost areas, the report says.
The CBO says that for those earning less than $45,000 per year, dental insurance premiums could be $3,000 higher in 2022 than in 2021.
To help people buy insurance, the law requires all insurance plans to cover all dental services.
But the cost varies depending on the type of dental treatment.
In a typical dental office, the average annual cost of the first two years of a treatment can be $5,000, according to the Congressional Research Service.
The average annual dental bill for a patient with diabetes could be more than $8,000.
But for someone with a normal or minor condition like dental problems or allergies, the bill could be much less.
The Congressional Budget Service says the average cost of a visit for someone in high health care is $4 to $6,000 depending on their age, health, and income.
Most people in low- and moderate-income families can afford to pay less than that, but for those in higher-income households, they may not be able to afford to.
The Congressional Research Report also says that the average amount a family spends on dental care per month could increase by $600 or more in 2022.
That could be a big problem for families with young children who are expected with more expensive care, or parents who need to cover a high-risk pregnancy or a child who needs dental care because of allergies.
