Medicaid, CHIP, and Your Child’s Dental Care
Regular access to dental care is an important part of good overall health — and it is especially important for children. Their teeth are still developing, and cavities or infections in young smiles can turn into much bigger issues later on. That is why states are required to cover dentistry services for children through Medicaid and CHIP (the Children’s Health Insurance Program).
In Texas, most children and young adults age 20 and younger with Medicaid or CHIP coverage are eligible for certain important dental services.
With Medicaid, dental services for children must include:
- Relief for pain and infections
- Restoration of teeth (filling cavities)
- Maintenance of dental health (regular checkups and cleanings)
If your child is covered under CHIP or Medicaid, take advantage of their dental benefits. It is very important that you take your little one to the dentist every six months. Even though baby teeth fall out eventually, they still need to stay healthy. Tooth decay is one of the most common preventable chronic diseases in childhood, causing problems like low self-confidence, poor nutrition, and orthodontic issues later on.
We Can Work With Your PPO Insurance
Understanding how insurance works is not easy, and one thing you need to know is about the difference between HMO and PPO plans. An HMO, or health maintenance organization, is limited to doctors who accept your specific provider. But if you have a PPO, or preferred provider organization, ACE Dental can accept your insurance plan. PPOs offer greater flexibility, allowing you to choose your own dentist. Call our office to discuss your dental insurance plan to learn more about your coverage.
