Dental coverage

Dental care is an important part of your overall health. That’s why we encourage you to schedule regular dental visits. It is never too late to start seeing a dentist.

HAP Empowered Dental

HAP Empowered members now have dental benefits through Medicaid. These new dental benefits are available to you because you are covered by Medicaid, or Children’s Special Health Care Services. Medicaid members over the age of 21 now have dental benefits.

Here are some of the services covered:

  • X rays
  • Teeth cleanings
  • Deep Teeth Cleanings
  • Sealants - once every three years
  • Root canals
  • Crowns - once every five years per tooth
  • Care to keep your gums healthy (periodontal care)
    Also covered is scaling when gums are inflamed and root planing
  • Cavity filings
  • Extractions (pulling teeth)
  • Dentures

Medicaid children under the age of 21 will continue to have dental benefits through state’s Healthy Kids Dental program.

Dental care is an important part of a healthy life and should start early. If you are a parent, take your child to their first dental visit when they turn two.

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.
