The state of Michigan’s Medicaid program covers dental care for you and your children. The state contracts with Delta Dental and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Together, they provide a network of dentists for children ages 0-20. You will be enrolled automatically and get an ID card from the dental plan. The card will have the phone number for your plan.
