Quite often we have people contact us to see if we accept Medicaid to cover braces. The question isn’t really if we accept Medicaid – but are braces covered by Medicaid. Unfortunately Medicaid does not cover orthodontic treatment anywhere in Texas.
Up until 2012 Medicaid use to cover braces. In 2012 this all changed and Medicaid no longer covers braces unless it was deemed a medical necessity (such as for complete handling of a cleft palate or other actual medical condition). For 99.9% of the Texas population, Medicaid does not cover the cost of braces.
The truth is that braces really aren’t a luxury when someone needs them. If you or someone in your family has a situation of teeth not being well aligned and straight, this can not only affect their bite and jaw position, it can also adversely affect their self-esteem and confidence and make life that much more difficult.
