Medicaid And CHIP Enrollment
We are a proud main dentist provider of Medicaid and CHIPS programs with the Texas Department of Health and Human Services Commission
HomeTown Dental Medicaid & CHIP Enrollment Instructions
In 2011, a new Medicaid and CHIP enrollment program started in Texas. That program ended on February 10, 2012. Did you enroll during that time? Today, you have what’s called a “Main Dentist.” This is your primary dentist. If you did not request HomeTown Dental to be your “Main Dentist” you might have been automatically assigned to another dentist.
How to Switch to HomeTown Dental for Mediciad and CHIP Dental Services
- Call the dental plan (DentaQuest or MCNA Dental) you were assigned to
- Provide them with the HomeTown Dental location you would like to go to
- Request that you favorite HomeTown Dental dentist be your “Main Dentist”
