At Lindenhurst Orthodontics we accept limited number of orthodontic patients on Public Aid (All Kids, KidCare, MedicAid) state dental insurance program.

 All Kids (MedicAid, PublicAid, KidCare Orthodontic/Braces Coverage
Medicaid is a form of government-funded health care available to low-income families and individuals. Illinois has two Medicaid programs specifically for children, All Kids and Family Care. All Kids provides health care to children of low-income families, while Family Care provides coverage for children and their parents. Each of these programs provides dental care and assists in paying for orthodontic treatment (braces). The dental program is administered by DentaQuest.

Who can qualify for Public Aid/ All Kids orthodontic benefits?

 Low income families in all counties including Lake County (Lindenhurst, Gurnee, Round Lake, Waukegan, Lake Villa, Grayslake, Antioch, etc.) can qualify for All Kids program.

My child has All Kids coverage. Does he automatically qualify for treatment with braces? 

Illinois Medicaid (All Kids) administratorss must pre-approve all patients for braces before an orthodontist can start treatment. Only children with a Modified Salzmann Index score of 42 or higher will qualify for orthodontic treatment. Orthodontists use this Index to indicate the severity of a patient's need for braces. All covered children younger than age 21 qualify for assistance in getting braces.

How do I know if my child qualifies for orthodontic treatment?

Once an orthodontic case is submitted for approval, it normally takes 3-4 weeks for the case to be evaluated by the All Kids (Public Aid, KidCare) administrator . Lindenhurst Orthodontics staff will contact you as soon as we receive the approval from All Kids. 

 What if my child does not qualify for braces through All Kids program?

If your child does not qualify for orthodontic treatment through All Kids program, we will work with you to try and establish a financial arangement that will work for your family's budget. At Lindenhurst Orthodontics we understand that your child's future is very important to you and we will try to do everything possible to help you provide your child with a beautiful and healthy smile for a lifetime. We have multiple payment plans and options that could be customized to your budget.
