Improving the Oral Health of the Most Underserved Kansans
In 2022 the Kansas Legislature approved funding to extend dental coverage to adults enrolled in Medicaid (KanCare). This new funding is the biggest step forward in the state’s history in making dental care available to some of the most underserved Kansans.

The new KanCare adult dental benefits went into effect on July 1, 2022. The coverage includes fillings and crowns, periodontal care, and silver diamine fluoride. Transportation to dental appointments for these services also are available. The managed care organizations (Aetna Better Health of Kansas, Sunflower Health Plan, and United Healthcare) will continue to cover exams and cleanings through their value-added benefits.

Please watch and share our short video announcing the start of the new dental benefits.
