hi I live in the uk I have suffered calcium deffiency when I had my 2 children and gum

hi I live in the uk I have suffered calcium deffiency when I had my 2 children and gum disease so I have no bottom back teeth and the rest are falling out too. I have no front teeth cos my ex partner knocked them out and went to jail for it, I have very little money as im on government benefits and they don't give me much. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me to have implants, I talk with a bit of a lisp usually but its even worse with no top front teeth thanks.

Medicare Dental Coverage and Supplemental Dental Benefits

Medicare dental benefits – available to those 65 years of age and older, those with disabilities and those with chronic kidney disease – are meager by any measure.

What Medicare Dental Coverage Pays For

Dentists routinely rate Medicare's oral health benefits as none, or next to zero, since they are limited to services deemed medically necessary, such as a dental exam prior to kidney transplantation or heart valve replacement, extractions performed in preparation for radiation treatment involving the jaw or jaw reconstruction following accidental injury.

Medicare does not cover routine dental care or most dental procedures such as cleanings, fillings, tooth extractions or dentures.

However, efforts in Congress, particularly the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003, have created incentives for Medicare-managed plans (not subject to the strict regulations of Medicare itself) to offer enhanced dental benefits.

Medicare will pay for some dentistry-related hospitalizations; for example, if you develop an infection after having a tooth pulled or you require observation during a dental procedure because you have a health-threatening condition. In such cases, Medicare will cover the costs of hospitalization and your dentist's treatment fee.

Medicare will never cover any dental care specifically excluded from Original Medicare
(i.e., dentures), even if you are in the hospital.

Medicare Parts A and B

Medicare coverage is divided into two parts.

Part A is a hospital insurance program. If you are eligible, you can enroll without charge. However, if you are not covered by Social Security, you must pay part of the premium. When you apply for Social Security, you automatically apply for Medicare. However, if you apply for Medicare, you are not automatically applying for social security.

Part B is a medical insurance program covering charges from doctors, surgeons and other outpatient providers, as well as fees for medical supplies. If you are eligible for part A, you have the option of selecting supplemental part B coverage. To take advantage of part B, you must pay a monthly premium. In most cases, if you obtain routine care from out-of-network providers, neither Medicare nor a Medicare Advantage HMO plan will pay for the costs.

You do not have to be retired to enroll in Medicare. You are eligible for Medicare starting at age 65. When you apply for Medicare you are automatically eligible for both Part A and Part B. But even if you keep working after you turn 65, you should sign up for Medicare Part A. If you have health coverage through your employer or union, Part A may still help pay some of the expenses your group health plan does not cover.

You may wish to wait to sign up for Medicare Part B if you or your spouse are working and have group health coverage through your or your spouse's employer or union. You would have to pay the monthly Medicare Part B premium, and the Medicare Part B benefits may have limited value to you as long as your group health plan is the primary payer of your medical bills.

Medigap (Supplemental Insurance) Policy

Medigap (supplemental insurance) is health insurance sold by private insurance companies to fill the “gaps” of your original Medicare plan coverage. Medigap policies help pay some of the healthcare costs that your original Medicare plan does not cover. If you are enrolled in the Medicare plan and also have a Medigap policy, then Medicare and your Medigap policy will each pay their shares of your covered healthcare costs.

Insurance companies can only sell a “standardized” Medigap policy. You may be able to choose from up to 12 different standardized Medigap policies (Medigap Plans A through L). Medigap policies must follow federal and state laws. A Medigap policy must be clearly identified on the cover as “Medicare Supplement Insurance.” Each plan – Plan A through Plan L – has a different set of basic and extra benefits. Since costs can vary, it is important to compare Medigap policies. The benefits in any Medigap Plan A through L are the same for any insurance company. Each insurance company decides which Medigap policies it wants to sell.

In order to buy a Medigap policy you must have Medicare Part A and Part B, and you will have to pay the monthly Medicare Part B premium. You also will need to pay a premium to the Medigap insurance company. Medigap policies won't cover any healthcare costs for your spouse; you and your spouse must each buy separate Medigap policies.

Medicare Dental Advantage Plans

Dental coverage is available at low, or sometimes no, cost to Medicare-eligible seniors who join a Medicare-sanctioned, state-regulated fee-for-service plan that provides dental and medical assistance. Known as Medicare Advantage plans, they are run nationwide by private health insurers in compliance with federal guidelines. Medicare Advantage plans now provide coverage for approximately nine million of the 44 million people in the Medicare population; up from about six million in 2006.

A Medicare Advantage Private Fee-for-Service plan works differently than a Medicare supplement plan (see above). Your doctor or hospital is not required to agree to accept the plan's terms and conditions, and may choose to forgo treatment, with the exception of emergencies. Some Medicare Advantage plans may include dental benefits.

Dental plan members can choose from a large network of qualified providers. Some plans are flexible to the extent that you may choose any provider. Optional services (riders) are available to health plan members for an additional monthly premium, though not all optional services are available in all areas. Consult your Medicare Advantage plan to see what dental services are covered.

Medicare Advantage dental benefits vary among providers. Some have monthly premiums and an initial enrollment fee. Others have a co-payment for office visits and an annual dollar cap.

AARP Delta Dental Plans

The Delta Dental Insurance Company, one of the nation's largest providers, in partnership with AARP, offers flexible private coverage in the form of two recently established programs available to AARP members (who must be age 50 or older to qualify) and their families.

Delta Dental Plan A

Plan A is a fee-for-service program providing comprehensive benefits through a network of 182,000 Delta Dental Premier providers – three out of every four dental practices in the country.

Enrollees also can save money by seeing one of Delta Dental's 67,000 PPO dentists. They also can go out of network entirely – though that may equate to higher out-of-pocket costs.

With monthly fees averaging $56 for single (varying by state and available for single, two-person and family), Plan A is the higher priced of the two programs. It features a one-year mandatory enrollment period, phased-in benefits and a standard maximum benefit of $1,350 per year. It covers a wide range of preventive, diagnostic and treatment services, including emergencies. Diagnostic and preventive care is free of charge. After the first year, most major restorative services are billed at 50 percent.

Plan A offers first-year coverage for the following:

After 12 months, periodontics, crown and cast restorations, dentures (prosthodontics) and temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) treatment are covered at 50% for both Plan A and Plan B.

Ohio Low Income Dental Options

Click Here For Website

The ability to receive quality dental care is important but many Americans must often choose between dental care and other expenses of daily living - and dental care is often sacrificed.

While it is reported nationally that access to affordable dental care is a major problem, organized dentistry in the state of Ohio has been visionary, responding to this need with statewide programs that provide needed access to oral health care to qualified individuals.

One such program is Dental OPTIONS, sponsored by the Ohio Dental Association and Ohio Department of Health. It is a program that links people in need with dentists who have agreed to treat approved patients for reduced fees.

More programs are needed to ensure that all Ohioans get the dental care they need. The ODA is working with the Ohio Department of Health to determine cost-effective ways to provide care to vulnerable Ohioans.

The Ohio Department of Health provides information on finding dental care, including Safety Net Dental Care Programs in the state, and information on Healthy Start, Dental OPTIONS and more. A Safety Net program offers sliding fee schedules, reduced fees or free care to those who cannot afford a private dentist. For information on safety net programs, contact a referral coordinator of the OPTIONS program, 1.888.765.6789.

For more information on Dental OPTIONS call 1.888.765.6789.

Connecticut Medical Programs Available For Low Income

The Department provides medical assistance to low income persons and people who could otherwise support themselves if not for the fact that they have excessive health care costs.  Assistance is provided through a variety of programs and administrative functions.  To learn more about Connecticut’s Medical Assistance Program go to: Connecticut Medical Assistance Program

Information for health care providers enrolled or interested in more detailed information regarding the Connecticut Medical Assistance Program can be found at:  Connecticut Medical Assistance Program


 Medicaid for the Employed Disabled

The Medicaid for the Employed Disabled program was authorized by The Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999. Its implementation in Connecticut is mandated under Public Act 00-213 Work Incentives for Persons with Disabilities. The program allows persons with a disability to engage in employment without risking eligibility for needed medical services through the Medicaid program. The program also allows certain individuals to keep other necessary services needed to remain employed. In general an eligible person with a disabling condition who is employed, can qualify for Medicaid without the use of spenddown while earning income in excess of traditional income limits.
 
More information can be found on the Medicaid for the Employed Disabled Program page.
 

Medicaid

The Medicaid program provides for remedial, preventive, and long term medical care for income eligible aged, blind or disabled individuals, and families with children. Payment is made directly to health care providers, by the department, for services delivered to eligible individuals. The program complies with federal Medicaid law (Title XIX of the Social Security Act) and regulations in order to receive 50% reimbursement from the federal government.

Individuals may meet Medicaid eligibility requirements in a number of ways. Individuals or families who meet the income and asset eligibility criteria in effect for Aid To Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) on July 16, 1996 or the State Supplement program are eligible for Medicaid. In addition, individuals who meet all the eligibility requirements, with the exception of income, may be eligible if the amount of medical expenses owed is greater than the amount by which their income exceeds the established income standards. Children born after Sept. 30, 1980 whose family income is less than 185% of the poverty level, and pregnant women whose income is less than 185% of the poverty level are also eligible.

The Medicaid program objectives are supported by certain key services provided to recipients: HealthTrack provides education regarding access to health care for Medicaid recipients under 21 eligible for Medicaid. "Home and community-based care" waivers allow for the provision of certain non-medical services in order to avoid more costly institutionalization of individuals. The department is also working with schools to expand the availability and accessibility of school-based medical care for Medicaid eligible students.
