A) Hi there! If you have Medicaid, you may be eligible for dental benefits that cover dentures. It’s best to contact your Medicaid office to confirm your benefits and if there are any out-of-pocket costs for the specific service you need. Medicaid dental benefits vary by state, so it’s important to confirm with your local office. If there are costs associated with the service, you may be able to set up a payment plan or ask for assistance through local organizations or charitable programs.
If you are on Medicaid your State have flexibility to determine what dental benefits are provided to you as an adult Medicaid enrollee. While most states provide at least emergency dental services for adults, less than half of the states currently provide comprehensive dental care. There are no minimum requirements for adult dental coverage. Please reach out to your state care provider to get information on dental services available to you.
