Medical providers cover dental services for both children and adults. With Medi-Cal you are responsible for any Share of Cost (SOC) amount. Because of the Affordable Care Act Medi-Cal health plans offer what is known as Essential Health Benefits (EHB), including dental benefits. You are also responsible for the benefits available under the Medi-Cal Dental Program that duplicate those provided under any other contractual or legal entitlements you are receiving.
Benefits that are included in Medi-Cal benefits are services such as: Exams and x-rays, Cleanings (Prophylaxis), Fluoride treatments, Fillings, Root canals in front teeth, Prefabricated Crowns (stainless steel or tooth colored), Full dentures, Other medically necessary dental services.
The kinds of dental services a person might get are services like emergency services for pain control, diagnostic and preventive dental hygiene (e.g. examinations, x-rays, and teeth cleanings), root canal, tooth extractions, Prosthetic appliances, and Orthodontics for those who qualify.
The annual maximum for people with this plan is $1,800.00, but if medically necessary they might be able to exceed the maximum.
