Dental care can be expensive, especially for those without insurance. Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Arizona’s Medicaid, offers a solution for families in Arizona. AHCCCS provides low-cost or free health coverage to eligible Arizona residents.
This page will explore what AHCCCS covers for dental work, who is eligible for the program, and how AZ Family & Kid’s Dental can help you get the dental care you need.
What Is AHCCCS?
AHCCCS is a government-funded program that provides low-cost or free health coverage to eligible Arizona residents. The program covers a wide range of health services, including dental services for children. AHCCCS is designed to help families struggling to pay for medical and dental care and ensure they have access to quality health care.
Who Is Eligible for AHCCCS Dental Work?
Eligibility for AHCCCS is based on several factors, including household size, income, and citizenship status.
In Arizona, children between the ages of zero and 20 can receive essential and preventive dental care through the state’s Medicaid program. With the support of the Arizona legislature, adult residents who are 21 years and older now have access to emergency dental care as of spring 2018.
What Does AHCCCS Cover for Dental Work?
AHCCCS covers a wide range of dental services for children, including preventive care, basic services, and orthodontic treatments.

- Regular dental screenings and assessments
