The cost of a child’s dentistry treatment may seem small, but when it comes to the health and safety of a parent or caregiver, it’s a large sum of money.
And that’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is asking for your help in helping us create a program to help prevent childhood dental caries.
The CDC has launched a dental care initiative to reduce the costs of childhood dental care, but parents and caregivers need to be aware of the potential financial impact of a dental program and ensure that the dental care is delivered in a way that is safe and effective.
In addition to the money you will earn from your dental program, the program will also help us keep our community healthy and well-insured, with a reduction in dental carie rates.
In order to qualify for this dental program from the CDC, you will need to have a household income of less than $50 of which $25 of that income can be derived from a Medicaid or Medicare program.
You may be eligible for a dental insurance program from your insurance plan if your household income is less than 200% of the federal poverty level.
The maximum benefit you may be able to receive for a family of three is $7,150 for individuals and $13,500 for families of four.
This dental benefit is not dependent on your household size.
The benefits you may qualify for depend on the type of insurance plan you choose, and are subject to your family size.
To find out more about your dental plan, call your local health department or visit your local Medicaid office to find out how much dental coverage your state provides.
You may also be eligible to apply for a Medicaid dental benefit if your income is below 138% of poverty.
