Michigan Medicaid

If you’re in Michigan and don’t have traditional insurance, you may be wondering if you can afford dental care or have it covered some other way. The answer is yes, you can. Michigan Medicaid will cover medically necessary dental procedures, so there is no time like right now to get the dental care you need.

How to Use Michigan Medicaid for Dental Services

If you are a resident in Michigan and are on Medicaid, there are a couple of things you need to know about your coverage and how to find a dentist that accepts Medicaid. There are two programs in the state of Michigan. One is the normal Medicaid plan and the second is MIChild. Both programs are run by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

For both of these services, Medicaid will pay for your treatment, although there may be a co-pay. If you have applied for Medicaid and been approved, you will receive a mihealth card. This is the card that you will use when you go see a dentist.

Co-pays for dental services for those over the age of twenty-one can be as little as $3.00. For patients that are on the MIChild plan, there is a monthly premium of $10 no matter how many children you may have. This service is for children under the age of twenty-one.

For those under the age of twenty-one, your dental benefits will fall under the healthy Kids Dental Program or through Medicaid. Over the age of twenty-one, dental services will be paid for under Medicaid.
