Question

Can a Medicaid patient pay directly for veneers, orthodontics, pediatric partials, etc., which are considered non-covered procedures?

Yes, a provision is made for billing non-covered procedures to the patient in the Provider Manual. The patient must be notified, in writing, that the service is a non-covered service prior to starting treatment. A waiver must be signed by the patient stating that the patient is solely responsible for payment. The Medicaid visit copay, if applicable, cannot be charged for non-covered procedures.
