If you are enrolled in Medicaid, rest assured that Medicaid covers your child’s dental expenses. At Kool Smiles, we believe that every child should have access to quality dental care at an affordable price.
That’s why we are happy to accept most insurance plans, including Medicaid and TRICARE, so we can better serve your children and their dental needs.
States are required to provide dental benefits to children covered by Medicaid, but certain states choose whether to provide dental benefits for adults.
Medicaid covers medically necessary dental procedures for children, as part of a set of benefits, referred to as the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment benefit (EPSDT).
Under Medicaid, the state determines the medical necessity of your child’s procedure. The minimum dental services for children under Medicaid include:
In many cases, your child’s Medicaid coverage may also cover treatments like fillings, endodontics, sealants, crowns, fluoride treatments, and other dental procedures.
