My child has All Kids coverage, are braces covered?
Not necessarily. If your child qualifies for the All Kids program in Illinois (21 years and under), the program provides dental coverage for exams, cleanings, fluoride, sealants, fillings, root canals and other common dental procedures. Each patient must be pre-approved before orthodontic treatment can begin and only children with severe needs will qualify for orthodontic treatment and braces. Your child must qualify before orthodontia is covered by All Kids (Medicaid) in Illinois.
