Does Medicaid Cover Braces?

Here at Mack and Hansen Orthodontics we are committed to making orthodontic treatment affordable for everyone.

We get a number of questions during a typical week about how we make treatment affordable including our payment plans, which we do offer with 0% interest, insurance, and medicaid.

When it comes to braces, there is a difference between orthodontic insurance and dental insurance. Orthodontic insurance does cover braces, but just because you have dental insurance does not mean you have orthodontic insurance. It is important to understand this because if you have the option of adding orthodontic insurance, you may want to consider doing so.

We also often get asked if medicaid covers orthodontic treatment and braces, or if there is an orthodontist who accepts medicaid here in Longview, TX. Here in the state of Texas, it is rather difficult for an orthodontic case to be approved by Medicaid. In fact, very very few orthodontic (braces) cases are approved each year. So while there may not be a medicaid orthodontist in Longview, we do not want this to be a barrier for those who want and need braces and that is why we make every effort to ensure treatment is affordable for you and your family with our low down payments and payment plans
