Healthy Connections Now Provides Adult Dental Benefits
Dental health is a key part of improving and maintaining your health. The health of your teeth and gums can affect the health of the rest of your body. Healthy Connections recognizes this fact and now covers preventive dental services, up to $750 per fiscal year, for adult (age 21 and over) members. The new services offered include:
An annual cleaning
These new services are available to members age 21 and older who have full Healthy Connections Medicaid benefits. There is a $3.40 copayment for adult Healthy Connections Medicaid members toward the cost of preventive care. The new benefit does not cover crowns, root canals, periodontal scaling and root planing, teeth whitening or dentures.
Members may locate a participating dental provider by visiting the Dentaquest website at www.dentaquest.com or calling 1 (888) 307-6552.
