Root canal
« on: August 22, 2019, 11:41:25 AM »
Anyone have success in getting Medicaid to cover a root canal?
I have UHC Community plan, and got the initial denial letter (they say they only cover if the dentist can show the back teeth don't touch when biting).
On the letter it says that I might be able to get regular Medicaid to cover, does anyone know anything about that?

AFAIK they don't cover it for adults.

I believe there might be a few dentists on DDF, they might have more accurate answers. Check https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=17327.0
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

 :) Maybe they can arrange a DDF special root canal price?
