Adult Medicaid plans offer extremely limited benefits. Most plans only cover the cost of exams, cleanings, and extractions. They do not cover root canals, crowns, braces, gum treatment, dentures, or implants for adults. These plan are helpful for preventive care but not for repairing teeth once already damaged. Additionally, the plan do not reimburse dentist adequately to cover the costs of PPE, supplies, and the over cost of treatment.
