Celebrate National Children’s Dental Health this February

  To bring awareness, the Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign is reminding families that dental services are covered for children and teens who are eligible for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).  Enrollment in Medicaid and CHIP is open year-round; however, coverage must be renewed annually. Parents and caregivers should enroll their child today, or if already covered, call their healthcare provider to schedule an appointment. Visit the “Find Coverage for Your Family” map on InsureKidsNow.gov to access information by state or call 1-877-KIDS-NOW (1-877-543-7669).  It’s also a critical time to remind families enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP to update their contact information with their state Medicaid office so they can receive information about Medicaid Unwinding – an end to expanded public health insurance coverage that was allowed during the pandemic.
