ACCEPTED INSURANCE PLANS

The Affordable Care Act Medi-Cal health plans offer what is known as Essential Health Benefits (EHB), including dental benefits. Medical providers cover dental services for both adults and children. With Medi-Cal you are responsible for any Share of Cost (SOC) amount. 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.

The information given bellow is for Medi-Cal insurance plans we currently accept. Please contact our office if you don’t have this insurance plan listed but are still interested in coming to Victoria Village Dentistry.

When a patient has Denti-cal or Medical insurance they can receive dental services through their insurance. The dentist they are allowed to see will depend on the type of insurance they have. We accept Medi-cal at our dental office. People who live in Riverside and have Medi-cal can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that our dental office can service them with their dental needs. If your insurance covers work by our Medi-cal dentist closest to you, our office will help you file a claim.

Having a Medi-cal identification card at your first appointment might be necessary. Let someone at the front desk know which insurance plan you have, and any information needed. Our office will help you establish if your insurance can cover anything our DDS will be doing during your visit, as well as notifying you to any kind of copayment that you may have to pay.
