AHCCCS Medical Program

questions & answers

Question: IS THERE ANY AHCCCCS PLAN THAT HELPS OUT WITH DENTAL BESIDES ONLY DOING EXSTRACTIONS.

Answer: Children and adults under age 21 who are enrolled in AHCCCS have comprehensive dental coverage. Generally, adults 21 years of age and older who are enrolled in AHCCCS are eligible only for emergency dental care and medically necessary dentures; however individuals enrolled in the Arizona Long Term Care System, an AHCCCS program for persons needing an institutional level of care, may be eligible for additional dental services. Members should call their health plan for more information about coverage. For health plan phone numbers, visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) link on MyAHCCCS.com or go to https://azweb.statemedicaid.us/healthplanlinks/default.asp. You may also call 1-800-962-6690 for help (602-417-7000 in Maricopa County).

since proper Dental care figures prominently in the total health of the individual, affecting the heart primarily, it seems ridiculous to me that basic dental care is not available.
