Most dental insurance plans allow patients the flexibility to visit the dentist of their choice and still receive coverage. Medicaid and CHIP policies have stringent limitations on which dentists patients can visit and what treatments they can receive. In order to ensure your benefits are available, you should call our dental office prior to your first appointment and let a dental team member know that your family is covered by Medicaid or CHIP. The dental office team member you talk to will ask you a number of questions in order to ensure your treatment is approved, so you receive coverage for all the services you receive in our office. If you’re not a regular patient with our dental office and you’re experiencing a dental emergency, call us right away. Even without coverage preapproval with Medicaid, emergency treatments are usually covered for any patient at any age.
