Common Questions and Answers about Dental insurance california


Avatar f tn Also should I be worried about the brown spot? And my last question is, should I apply towards dental insurance or could New Mexico medicaid cover all the expenses? My teeth never hurt but fillings are necessary as well as braces.
Avatar f tn You can go to a local dental school or contact your local dental society for a free clinic possibly. I think for California, medicaid doesn't cover dental anymore for adults so it may vary from state to state. It sounds like you have an abscess. Go to your primary care doctor and get a prescription for the infection to at least keep it under control while you find a dentist.
Avatar n tn I know once u turn 21 u wont get dental u can still qualify for medical just not for dental thatswt they told me, but currently i get all benefits since im pregnant after pregnancy i go back to regular medical,
Avatar n tn I had medical at a point and I know they have dentical for dental and medical should cover optometrists because mine did. I haven't had it in over 4 years so it may be different but call and ask.
Avatar f tn The only thing I liked about covered California is it helps you pay for your monthly payment for insurance. Instead of like 450 for insurance we would end up paying 163. But that depends on what company and what insurance you get. Btw the medical takes a lot longer now to process thanks to the healthcare reform so I say apply on time. It took me 3mos to find out I was denied for medical and now its too late for me to be covered by anything on my due date.
Avatar f tn Google or look in your local phone book for dental schools. If you have no income or insurance they will usually do the work for free. I know several people who have went to dental schools and are very happy with the care.
Avatar f tn Hey everyone, I wasn't sure where to post and this is the first forum that came up so maybe I can find some answers? Please keep rude comments to yourself. My mom is the strongest woman I know. She's gone through hell and back taking care of my ill great grandfather for the last 12 years, all while forgetting to take care of herself and live her own life. Her teeth got really, really bad and have begun to fall out or are extremely chipped.
Avatar n tn hi, i don't have any dental insurance so I need to pick and choose which tests and procedures at the dentist are really needed. I ask you this because I hope to find unbiased opinion. Last time I skipped the peridontal xray, but got the cavity xray and cleaning...he found 2 tiny cavities that ran me $400 out of my pocket but later a hygenist said maybe that wasn't necessary as the decay could have been reversed... So what do I "really" need..
1027870 tn?1252056250 yes you too can have a dental plan that most reputable dentists will not accept! i would love to go to a dental mill full of new, inexperienced dentists.
Avatar f tn Nope insurance doesnt cover it :(( i tried researching it also insurance doesnt coverbit and each dr has their own prices geeeeshh
Avatar f tn Does anyone living in california, have insurance that is not work related - that covers IVF. Blue Shield does not cover anything to do with infertility?

I am new to the area and theres not many psychiatrist that will take state insurance, I am on disability for having extreme bipolar disorder and anxiety along with occasional night terrors need medication asap. any information will help thank yall!!
Avatar n tn I have dental insurance but as we all know the coverage has been less and less over the past few years so I looked into dental discount programs. Did you know that some dental providers will accept both insurance and a dental discount plan togeather? It took me about 5 phone calls but I know it was worth it. On my first visit I had 3-cavitys filled. The cost after my insurance was $144. factor in the dental discount plan and my out of pocket cost was only $14!!! Check it out at http://www.
Avatar n tn My husband (40 y/o,healthy)and I (40 y/o, healthy) are looking to get our health insurance coverage from next present. Right now we are on cobra GHI( extension from my previous work place) but they are asking me to change to EMPIRE PPO or EPO since they will not have GHI. I did not have dental and vision coverage previously but even if I want it they are saying they cannot add it. They are also asking for a one year committment.
Avatar n tn I am disabled on Original Medicare, have no intent to buy private insurance... I am wondering, is it possible for an individual to get real, stand alone dental insurance? Everything I've looked at caps yearly benefits at $1,000 or so which is completely insulting considering the premiums are close to half of that. Where can you buy dental insurance that gives you "REAL" coverage?
29837 tn?1414534648 didnt cover it the drug companys have made provisions for people to get the drugs even if they cant afford it. Amazing. But still, thank god for Insurance! Insurance will also pay for supplements if you cant afford it, md. just has to write a script.
7530804 tn?1398546771 U can set up something b4 u even leave long as ur insurance will work there. The id thing u will have to wait for tho until u have proof of residency.
Avatar f tn Ok mommys that have medicaid . Will I get denied if I already have dental insurance but not health insurance?
Avatar f tn I had to get emergency medi-cal bc my insurance decided to cut me off when I hit 36 weeks. When I applied I was told the approval process can take up to 90 days, however when you get approved they will cover you from the date you applied...does that make sense? Like if you applied on oct 1st but didnt get approval until dec 1st, they would cover the period in between.
Avatar m tn Highland hospital is excellent information for you. By the way, you say you are 26 years old. Are you aware that you can be covered under a family health plan if one of your parents has health insurance through work? For very little extra cost one of your parents could put you on their plan during open enrollment up until you are 27 years old. You could have all testing and evaluation done for your hepatitis C!
Avatar n tn A claim just ended against a dentist for a 4 tooth bridge that had NO occulusion ..I went the route of the California Dental Board Peer Review ....a nightmare of the first order....Lesson #1; the dentist does NOT have to tell the in a court of law...Lesson #2; The Peer Review Board ONLY goes by the dentists records and his buddies examinations (from his local dental association)...
Avatar m tn Hello, I can't remember the last time I was at the dentist but at the time the dentist said I had no cavities. Now I'm 21 and I have a cavity in on of my top molars. I don't know what to do, I don't have dental insurance and I really don't have the money to get it fixed. I don't want to wait any longer and have it get any worse but I don't have the extra arm and a leg the dentists charge.
Avatar f tn My husband is dying form liver disease and we do not have insurance. Is there a way to get help now?
Avatar f tn Hey Sarah I too am a college student looking for health insurance, I was curios to know what you chose and what worked for you. Also did you add dental to your health insurance, I cant find many quotes with both to know how much together they would cost.
Avatar m tn I am so far a healthy 43 year old/m in pa. I am trying to decide which health insurance plan will be good for my situation and I am looking for some opinions here. This Month my group plan ends and I can take cobra but there is no financial benefit to taking my same PPO plan which gives me to price break for being unemployed. So I am trying to look at this at a meaningful way. Since my PPO was $475/m plue $29 dental I just cant be paying that on my own now.
Avatar n tn I am just getting my own dental insurance next month, so I believe I would have to wait a year to see a periodontist with this particular insurance. If you have any suggestions on how to keep my gums as healthy as possible, so that I can avoid more problems, please let me know. Thanks so much.
