You may be billed for any services that are over the limit. Some dental services may have limits and/or prior authorization requirements. Please contact our Case Manager or Customer Care Center if you have any questions.

  • All health plan members ages 20 and younger are assigned to a Dental Home, also known as a Primary Dental Provider (PDP). A Dental Home is a dentist’s office that is visited every six months for a check-up.

Use these guidelines for scheduling appointments for your child:

  • Emergency dental appointments – same day appointments for extreme pain and dental emergencies.
  • Urgent dental appointments – within 3 days for lost fillings, broken tooth.
  • Routine dental appointments – within 45 days for routine checkups and dental cleanings.
  • Make sure you take your child’s B – UFC/ALTCS Member ID card with you to the dental appointment.
