Dentures, yes; crowns, maybe not.

Your Department of Social Services has a list of dentists who accept Medicaid, so get it from them (or your case worker).

Once you've found someone, ask them to send in an 'override' to request benefits for denture/crowns... xrays and a narrative from the dentist should be included.

Good luck to you!

Medicaid will pay for dentures, not crowns. They will pay for the minimum service to allow you to function. Crowns are expensive, so not a covered benefit.

Your bigger difficulty will be finding a dentist who accepts Medicaid. Many dentists will no longer accept it since the government is very poor about paying out on claims. Your best bet is to go through the Yellow Pages and keep calling till you find one who accepts Medicaid.

I'm on Medicaid and just had my teeth removed in Dec. I was under the impression that Medicaid will not pay for dentures, only to get your teeth pulled.

After reading some of the answers you've received, I'm going to call my case worker and find out the truth for myself, as well as you. :-)
