Dental insurance for california

Common Questions and Answers about Dental insurance for california


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 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 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 Sorry I had private insurance back then but my dads job cut it so now for my pregnancy I applied for medical
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 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 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..
Avatar f tn My question is if your insurance covers everything for labor an delivery does insurance cover circumcisions?
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?
Avatar n tn I need a psychiatrist that is in modesto ca that accepts medicare or medi cal... can u help? 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 f tn s a political mess in the dental profession and that is not helping patients like you. And for that I apologize for my profession, but as one person I do what I can, even though sometimes I'm not popular with the politically motivated dentists. It's also the reason I take the time to pass out advice--for whatever it's worth. I think most dentists are used to dealing with dental phobics as there are a lot of you.
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 Prices range from around $340(for hospital only plan)-$1995(for a more comprehensive HMO) per month for a couple. Couple of ways you can get better rates; 1) If one of you is Sole Proprietor business owner, 2) If you apply & enroll separately. I recommend you to consult a licensed agent that represents companies like GHI or Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield. You can either find a local licensed agent or find a “licensed” online agency (like the one I work for; ).
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.
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?
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 I don't know if a change of residence will help your FMS...but it did help mine. I got sick in 2000 and was diagnosed with FMS in 2001. I went through periods of being bed ridden, unable to walk and in excruciating pain. I also had incredible fatigue, brain fog...this list goes on. I had to stop working at the career I loved, had to stop going to school...basically I lost my life as I knew it. In October of 2006 I moved from California to Oklahoma (Tulsa area).
Avatar f tn Ok mommys that have medicaid . Will I get denied if I already have dental insurance but not health insurance?
Avatar m tn // "Covered California" will serve you and all Californians by helping to: Improve access to high-quality coverage. More Californians than ever before will have easy access to a wide range of private health plans. More than 5 million Californians who do not have health insurance can benefit from lower-cost coverage. Covered California will help these individuals learn about the health coverage options that best meet their needs.
Avatar f tn However, I must say that I applied strictly for pregnancy medi-cal, I believe it would have taken longer if I would have applied for general medi-cal because there is a lot more paper work involved, with pregnancy (at least here in california) no one can be denied coverage for pregnancy. You can aquire a share of cost if you make too much money.
Avatar f tn I also know the CPMC excepts some patients with no insurance and helps them. CPMC will assist patients in getting public assistance for its patients if it can't they do take charity cases. "Financial Assistance Program (Charity Care) "We are a not-for-profit Medical Center, and recognize that medical bills are usually unexpected, and frequently unaffordable. Because of this, we have an active Financial Assistance Program also known as Charity Care.
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 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.
