Knowing what is covered and where you can find a dentist who accepts Medicaid can save you stress and money when your children need to see the dentist.
If you want to know if you qualify for Medicaid coverage, HealthCare.gov has an online screening process that can tell you if you’re eligible. It’ll allow you to find out if you qualify in just minutes.
