Full Answer

InsureKidsNow.gov is specifically designed to inform families about health insurance and dental options for children and teenagers. It's also constructed to help families locate a dentist accepting Medicaid and CHIP plans. A toll-free phone line is provided on the home screen to allow families to call and learn about health care options in their state.

Another way to locate local dentists is by clicking on "Learn About Programs in Your State" in the navigation column on the left-hand side. Visitors to the site can select their state to learn more information about local available programs. Medicaid and CHIP programs are available for minors in all states, and each page provides phone numbers and links to local information. Clicking on "Find a Dentist" under "Getting Dental Care" takes users to a list of local dentists accepting these programs.

All children enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP have free access to dental checkups, X-rays, fluoride treatments and fillings. A complete list of dental benefits by state is also available.
