EPSDT Dental Services
HOW TO ACCESS:
Medicaid recipients 0 through 20 years of age.
The EPSDT Dental Program provides coverage of certain diagnostic; preventive; restorative; endodontic; periodontic; removable prosthodontic; maxillofacial prosthetic; oral and maxillofacial surgery; orthodontic; and adjunctive general services. Specific policy guidelines apply.
Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment (braces) are paid only when there is a cranio-facial deformity, such as cleft palate, cleft lip, or other medical conditions which possibly results in a handicapping malocclusion. If such a condition exists, the recipient should see a Medicaid-enrolled orthodontist. Patients having only crowded or crooked teeth, spacing problems or under/overbite are not covered for braces, unless identified as medically necessary.
DentaQuest and MCNA Dental administer the dental benefits for eligible Medicaid recipients. Contact your plan to locate a network provider for questions about covered dental services.
