If they are Medi-Medi, I should be able to help them with an MA
plan that would offer them at least some of their dental work covered (up to $800 worth, another with Free dentures, "authorized") along with all of the other usual benefitsat $0 premium.
Texas doesn't really cover dental benefits as far as I know, only emergency dental at best. Even Calif (very generous compared to Tex) only covers emergencies now. I've sent several medicaid recip to a local clinic here in San Antonio that will do routine work at discount prices that are very reasonable. They work on a sliding scale and take appts on mondays.

Good Luck if anyone has any luck actually talking to one. I wouldn't want their jobs.
