Dental services for Wisconsin Medicaid members are covered under BadgerCare+. The dental coverage is part of the overall medical care program and not a stand-alone option. BadgerCare+ is a program for lower-income families, the elderly, and the disabled in the state of Wisconsin.
Please note, Wisconsin Medicaid is only accepted at MCDC Spalding Center.
Wisconsin also has several other programs that allow lower-income families receive the dental treatment they need. These programs include:
- The Fluoride Mouthrinse Program – This program is found in some elementary schools in Wisconsin that do not have access to a fluoridated water supply.
- Donated Dental Services Program – This program is for those sixty-five and over, have a chronic illness, or disability and a limited income. Dentists select one to two patients to treat each year for free.
- Seal-A-Smile Program – Helps promote good oral health by increasing the number of children in Wisconsin that have dental sealants on their teeth.
- Fluoride Varnish Program – Fluoride varnish can be applied directly to a child’s teeth by a dental professional. This helps reduce cavities and tooth decay. Wisconsin Medicaid has expanded it’s payment system to now cover these treatments.
In addition to the programs through Wisconsin Medicaid and the school systems in Wisconsin, MCDC also has programs that will help you cover the costs of dental treatments that are not currently covered elsewhere.
With this additional assistance, you can rest assured that you and your family will receive the dental care all of you need. By being able to start your children off right, with good oral health from their very first tooth, you will be setting them up for better general health for the rest of their life.
