One of the most common questions we are asked by parents is “DOES PUBLIC AID PAY FOR ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT WITH BRACES IN ILLINOIS?
If your children are covered by Public Aid, Medicaid, Medical Card, Tarjeta Medica or All Kids in Illinois, orthodontic treatment with braces may be covered.
Public Aid (also known as Medical Card, Medicaid, All Kids and Tarjeta Medica) is a state funded program that offers public assistance for children residing in Illinois that are in need of healthcare, dental care, oral surgery (including wisdom tooth extractions) and orthodontic treatment with braces.
It can be very difficult to find an experienced dentist or orthodontist that accepts coverage in Illinois and does not put a limit on the number of children they will provide care for. Many orthodontists, dentists and dental clinics will say that they accept Public Aid for orthodontics treatment with braces, but actually limit the number of patient accepted or the types of services they will offer to patients.
Unlike these other orthodontists, dentists and dental clinics, Den-Care Smile Center does not limit the number of patients that they accept. They do their best to accept every patient with state provided dental coverage and delivers the quality care you expect and deserve.
Orthodontic treatment with braces is available in many cases, but not all and the coverage requirements vary, depending on the age of the individual and the type of dental care required. In general, individuals between the age of 5 and 21 who have Illinois residents, under the age of 21, that have Medicaid coverage are entitled to certain dental services that are considered “orthodontics”.
Not all kids covered under the state Public Aid dental insurance program will qualify for orthodontic treatment with braces. State of Illinois administrators must pre-approve all children for braces coverage before orthodontic treatment can begin.
