Adult Dental Benefit
AmeriHealth Caritas New Hampshire is the only Medicaid plan in New Hampshire currently offering an adult dental benefit.
Adult members (21 and older) are covered for a range of dental services including:
- Preventive services (cleanings).
- Diagnostic services (exams and X-rays).
- Restorative services (fillings).
- Some periodontal services (root planing and scaling).
The NH Department of Health and Human Services will continue to cover extractions, and that is a separate program.
Benefits are covered only within the network.
This table provides more information about the covered adult dental services and limits.
