If you have All Kids or public aid dental insurance, your child’s orthodontic treatment with braces might be covered by the Public Aid.
However, not all patients covered by All kids/Medicaid will qualify for braces. You child must be pre-approved by the state for braces before an orthodontist can start treatment.
Please read bellow for full details about orthodontic coverage by Public Aid in the state of Illinois, or call one of our orthodontic office to set up a free consultation.
Low income families living in Illinois, can qualify for orthodontic (braces) coverage under (All Kids (Medicaid, Public Aid, Medical Card) state insurance program.

My child has All Kids coverage. Does it mean that he/she automatically qualifies for orthodontic treatment with braces?
No. Only comprehenisive (Phase II) orthodontic treatment (braces) can be covered by All Kids insurance.
Early or interceptive treatment such as growh modification, palatal (upper jaw) expansion and multiple other fixed and/or removable orthodontic appliances are not covered by Public Aid. Therefore, you child must have all premanent teeth to be considered for All kids orthodontic coverage. Visit https://www.reliefpools.com/. If you child requires early (interceptive) treatment or a fixed or removable orthodontic appliance other than braces, you will be responsible for the cost of treatment. If your son or daughter still require braces after interceptive treatment, the pre-approval can be submited to Medicaid administrators (DentaQuest) one all the primary (baby) teeth have been lost.
There is no charge to you for initial orthodontic consultation and necessary records. Once an orthodontic case is submitted for pre-approval, it normally takes 3-4 weeks for the case to be evaluated by the All Kids (Public Aid, KidCare, Medicaid) administrator. Our staff at Orthodontic Experts of will contact you as soon as we receive the decision from All Kids. The decision will be either “approved” or “denied.”
