If you want to know if you qualify for Medicaid coverage, HealthCare.gov has an online screening process that can tell you if you’re eligible. It’ll allow you to find out if you qualify in just minutes.
Screening: Before the dentist can take any action, he or she must look at your child’s teeth to make sure everything’s alright. After screening, the dentist can then make a recommendation for treatment.
General Care: This type of treatment qualifies as anything used to stop pain felt by infection or restore damaged teeth.
Preventive Care: These treatments stop issues from happening to your kids’ teeth in the future. Dental cleanings are a common form of preventive care. This also covers when the dentist talks to your children about how to brush and floss their teeth at home.
Emergency Services: Emergency situations like bleeding, unexpected loss of an adult tooth, or unexpected toothache are all covered by Medicaid. In any true emergency, your first step should be to call 911 for instructions and treatment.
