Several Kool Smiles locations have on-site orthodontists that accept Medicaid, TRICARE, and CHIP. However, because Medicaid rules differ from state to state, orthodontic services may not be covered by Medicaid at every Kool Smiles office.
Read on to learn whether your child qualifies for Medicaid or CHIP and if the orthodontic treatment they need can be covered by such programs.
The dental professionals at Kool Smiles are happy to help you find the orthodontic services your child needs. Kool Smiles offers a no-cost braces consultation to help determine whether or not your child will benefit from braces.
After a quick visit, we can even help you find out if your child is eligible for Medicaid or CHIP.

Medicaid is a government program offered by state and federal governments that provides health coverage to eligible adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults, and people with disabilities. In most cases, Medicaid will only cover orthodontic services for kids under the age of 21.
Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is government insurance for children whose families earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid but still have trouble affording private insurance. You can easily find out if you qualify for Medicaid or CHIP.
States are required to cover basic dental benefits for children covered by Medicaid or CHIP. Medicaid covers your child’s dental care, including everything from pain relief to regular checkups.
Braces and other orthodontic services may be covered if they are considered “medically necessary.” To determine if Medicaid covers orthodontic services in your state, contact your local insurance provider today.
