“Florida Medicaid has limited coverage for dental problems. Adult (age 21 and over) dental services include medically necessary emergency dental procedures to alleviate pain limited to emergency or infection: emergency oral examinations, necessary radio-graphs, extractions, incisions, and drainage of abscesses. Adult dental services also include dentures, partial dentures (one upper and lower per lifetime) and related services. For those buying private insurance, the Affordable Care Act does not require that dental coverage for adults be offered but you may be able to purchase a health plan that includes dental or a stand-alone dental plan.”
