UCare's MSHO Dental Options

Dental benefits for members of UCare's Minnesota Senior Health Options (MSHO) plan.

In addition to Medicare- and Medicaid-covered dental benefits, MSHO members have additional dental coverage for preventive and restorative dental services that are not covered by Medical Assistance (Medicaid). Members must receive these services from a network dentist.

Below is a list of preventive and restorative codes that may be accessed:

  • Scaling and root planing (D4341 and D4342)
    - Once every two years and only in an office setting. The member must have pocket depths of 4 mm or greater and documented bone loss visible on x-rays.
  • Additional dental exam (D0120)
    - One additional per calendar year
  • Molar root canal (D3330)
    - One per tooth per lifetime
  • Root canal re-treatment (D3346, D3347, D3348)
    - Rule: One re-treat per tooth per lifetime. Covered only if billed 24 months after original root canal.
  • Full mouth series (x-ray) (D0210)
    - Rule: Once per five years
  • Periodontal maintenance (D4910)
    - Four times per calendar year
    - Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal
  • PFM crown (D2750)
    - One per calendar year

Members will be informed of the portion of the cost they will need to pay for non-network services. Certain limitations apply.
