What is the Senior Low Income Dental Program?
The Senior Low Income Pension Dental Program is a public assistance program to provide basic dental care to individuals who may be eligible for programs such as Old Age Pension (OAP) or Medicare Savings Program (MSP) . Beneficiaries do not have to be currently receiving OAP or MSP or any other programs to qualify. The program will cover exams, x-rays, cleanings, amalgam & composite fillings, periodontal planing, complete and partial dentures (including relines and other repairs), extractions and some surgery procedures. There may be co-payments depending on the procedure.
Who is eligible for the Senior Low Income Dental Program?
Individuals must be 60 years old and either eligible for Medicaid (including the Medicare Savings Programs, but not long-term care services such as HCBS) or Old Age Pension. Individuals do not have to be receiving the benefit, only be eligible for it.
