Dental For Medicaid: for kids- Medicaid pays everything (checkups, fillings, braces, etc.), for adults it only pays for extractions. So if you are any adult, or a child without Medicaid, you have to pay for cleanings and fillings yourself. Either way, here are some places that take Medicaid and have low pricing for those without Medicaid.
Kids Choice (serves adults too) $49 initial dental evaluation with xray, cleaning and fluoride; about $86 to pull a tooth: near Kmart at Chambers and Colfax; M-F 9-7, Sa 9-4; or Kids Choice/Perfect Teeth near Kmart at Evans and Monaco; (303)476-6233; M-F 9-7, Sa 9-4
Comfort Dental at Mississippi and Peoria may have $19 for first visit.
Eye Care - Medicaid pays for exam and glasses for children, but only for major eye issues for adults.
If you are an adult with no insurance (or Medicaid) who needs glasses to see far away, then go to one of the WalMarts that has glasses (Stapleton, or Hampden and Yosemite). Total cost with glasses can be under $80 (about $40 for exam and $40 for glasses).
If you are an adult with no insurance (or Medicaid) who needs glasses to see near (reading glasses), just go to a WalMart vision center, and find a pair that feels right, no prescription needed. These can be as low as $10.
If you are an adult with Medicaid with other eye problems, including diabetes, then we will probably refer you to University.
If you are a child with Medicaid (or no insurance), or an adult with no insurance who has other eye problems (eg diabetes), you can try Kids Choice (also serves adults) near King Soopers at Colfax and Chambers; 303-341-5437. Accepts Medicaid, CHP+ and most other insurances. Free vision screening, and low prices if you are uninsured.
If you are an adult with CICP from Denver Health, then go to Denver Health Ophthalmology; if you have CICP from MCPN, then first go see your MCPN doctor.
