Medicaid coverage allows its clients to obtain dental services. The type of insurance held by the patient will determine the dentist, he or she will be able to visit. We accept various types of coverage, including Medicaid when offering dental services at our office.
Some insurance providers may provide patients with options to have examinations, therapies and other procedures at the office of the dentist, with co-payments or without any costs. If your insurance provides coverage by your Medicaid dentist near you, our dental office can help to submit your claim. We also accept other types of insurance and payment options, including most PPOs.
Bring your identification card during your first appointment. Alerting the individual at the front desk about the insurance plan you have, along with any other information is also suggested. Our office can assist you to determine whether or not your insurance provider covers anything our DDS will be performing during your visit to our office. You will also receive information about any copayment which you may be required to pay.
Medicaid Dental Coverage
The primary dental coverage provider for low-income adults is Medicaid. Certain low-income individuals including children, parents, pregnant women and the disabled can qualify for healthcare coverage provided by Medicaid. Coverage for adult dental services is optional for states but is a federal requirement for Medicaid programs offered by the state specifically to cover for comprehensive dental services for children. Some states are providing comprehensive dental coverage for adults while some are limiting themselves to only provide emergency dental services and others are refraining from providing any dental coverage. If you want to find out more about what dental care might be available to you under the Medicaid program in Texas please see the Texas Health and Human Services.
