Exciting Dental Coverage News for our Members!
Dental coverage is the Number One request that we receive from our adult Medicaid members. We are excited to announce that starting July 1, 2021, adults receiving full Medicaid benefits are eligible for comprehensive dental care, giving them access to more services and provider choices through DentaQuest.
Step One: Find a Dentist
Contact a DentaQuest representative at 1-888-912-3456 to find a dentist and learn more about the new dental benefit for adults enrolled in Medicaid
Visit the DentaQuest website for a listing of dentists who accept Medicaid in your zip code
Already have a dentist?
Call and make sure that your provider accepts Medicaid coverage so you can receive quality services at no cost.
Visit the DentaQuest Oral Health Library to learn more.
Step Two: Make an Appointment
Once you find a dentist, call and make an appointment. Be sure to tell the dental office that you are a Medicaid member. Remember to write down the date and time of the appointment. On the day of the appointment bring your blue and white Medicaid card or your managed care health plan ID card. The dentist needs to see this card at every visit.
You should visit your dentist every six months to make sure your teeth stay healthy.
