Medicaid Adds Adult Dental Benefit

smileBecause a lack of preventative dental care can lead to a variety of other medical conditions, Colorado has added an adult dental benefit that will begin April 1, 2014.

The benefit will be effective in two phases. First, beginning April 1, 2014, adults on Medicaid will be able to have preventative services such as cleanings and x-rays as well as minor fillings. Then July 1, 2014, restorative work can begin. Each person can get up to $1,000 of dental work done each year.
