Denti-Cal has more bite in 2018.
The new year means new dental benefits for adults on Medi-Cal.
The budget passed last year restored all dental benefits.
The state will once again cover things like deep cleaning, root canals, implants and partial dentures for those who qualify.
What does Medi Cal dental cover?
Medi-Cal offers comprehensive preventative and restorative dental benefits to both children and adults. Restored benefits will include, for example: Laboratory processed crowns, posterior root canal therapy, periodontal services, and partial dentures, including denture adjustments, repairs, and relines.
Are dental implants covered by medical insurance?
Some medical insurance plans are beginning to cover aspects of dental implants, especially if there are medical complications as a result of tooth loss. Insurance covering injuries and accidents that require the replacement of one or more teeth may allow for dental implants.
Does Medicare pay for dental implants?
It’s generally attached to a replacement tooth or bridge. Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, does not cover dental implants (nor does it cover routine dental care). Some Medicare Advantage plans may include routine dental services. Some dental insurance plans might cover some of the costs of dental implants.
