Braces and Medicaid

HI I'M A SINGLE PARENT WITH NO INCOME AND MY DAUGHTER JUST TURNED 14 AND HER DENTIST REFFERED HER TO SEE AN ORTHONDTIST FOR BRACES BUT WE MEDICAID AND HER TEETH IS IN VERY BAD SHAPE SHE HATES TO GO TO SCHOOL CAUSE ALL THE KIDS TALK ABOUT HER SO HOW CAN I FIND AN ORTHODTIST THAT ACCEPT MEDICAID

Dr. Slota: You may have to call each orthodontist in your area to see who would be accepting patients with Medicaid.   Your daughter has an obvious need, unfortunately Medicaid may not see this as "need".   That would mean you would need to pay for it yourself.

Unfortunate but reality.

They came down a litle and the rest of the teeth are in between crooked and straight do you think my insurance would pay for the braces? The insurance I have is Caresouce. Are tehy accept Caresouce for braces?

I would call medicaid. My foster child has Medicaid and was just approved for 100% braces. Good Luck
