I got a tooth pulled yesterday. the oral surgeon says I must replace the tooth or my teeth will begin to spread and tooth below the missing one will become damaged.

He said mostly likely it will cost 00. I have very low income and NY medicaid insurance. Will they help to cover some of the implant cost?

    MEDICAID DOESN’T COVER IMPLANTS.
    FYI, NO INSURANCE COVERS THESE.
    WHY NOT?
    THERE ARE MORE INEXPENSIVE ALTERNATIVES.

    You can ask whoever is doing the procedure if they participate with carecredit.com you can finance that way or you can ask them if they can set up a payment arrangment with you as far as your medicaid goes you will have to call them for benifit info

    No, NY Medicaid will not cover an implant at all. Medicaid may cover something called an ‘flipper’, but your general dentist will have to send in a pre-determination for approval.

    i want to get the mini implants.
    I have purchased a dental discount insurance would that cover some of the cost of getting the mini implants?
    then i though of a second option
    what about doing payments plans?
