The Mayo Clinic put it this way: Oral health is a window into overall physical health. There’s a strong connection between what goes on in your mouth and what goes on in the rest of your body.

That’s why it matters so much to understand what, exactly, is covered by MetroPlusHealth dental coverage. And that’s what we’re here to answer!

Meet our coverage partner, DentaQuest

At MetroPlusHealth, we’ve partnered with DentaQuest to provide dental health care services to our discerning New York members who deserve nothing but the best.

Just like us, they’re a purpose-driven health care company. They specialize in an inclusive approach to quality oral care and pride themselves on the trusting partnerships they’ve built with patients and providers.

DentaQuest has been in the business of serving its nearly 37 million dental and vision members across the U.S. for more than 30 years. Plus, they’re a leading dental insurance provider in New York specifically. They partner with us on a range of plans, from Medicaid and CHIP to marketplace plans.

What services are covered with MetroPlusHealth dental coverage?

If you’ve heard that $0 dental care is available in New York, you’re probably wondering how you can get free dental care. We have several plans like the Essential Plan and Child Health Plus that offer $0 dental care to income-qualified individuals and families based on family size and income.

Along with cost, what’s included in coverage is one of the first questions our members have. Whether you have kids who will almost certainly need braces or you’ve been putting off fillings and crowns for years, you’ll want to know what you can expect to be covered with MetroPlusHealth dental coverage.

At MetroPlusHealth, dental coverage varies by the health care plan you select. But, in general, you can expect these dental services to likely be covered by MetroPlusHealth and DentaQuest:

  • Emergency care
  • Preventative care
  • Routine dental care like cleanings
  • Full-mouth and panoramic x-rays
  • Extractions and other routine dental surgery
  • Most types of crowns
  • Orthodontics and braces
