Advisory Committees - IEDC Advisory Committee
ople with disabilities have extraordinary missions, dedicated staff, and valuable resources — but they can only provide some of the support an individual needs. For seniors and people with disabilities, navigating services and resources from different organizations across a widespread geographic area can be a challenge and often overwhelming. They often miss the opportunity to receive the full-scope of services from the resources available in their area. Creating the Inland Empire Disabilities Collaborative (IEDC) helped decrease the problem of fragmented resources. By joining forces, organizations who serve seniors and people with disabilities have developed a strong relationship with each other and the community they serve. IEDC Mission To promote equal opportunity, universal access, and full participation of people with disabilities in all aspects of life. About the IEDC Launched as a networking tool in February of 2006, the IEDC currently brings together over 540 members from regional organizations. This joint effort has allowed the IEDC to promote equal opportunity and universal access for seniors and people with disabilities. Events The IEDC hosts monthly meetings at IEHP and partners to host events that benefit the community at large. To become a member of the IEDC or attend an event visit www.iedisabilities.org

Medi-Cal Dental Coverage Insurance Information - Medi-Cal Dental Coverage Insurance Information
ms can start in our mouths, that's why Medi-Cal dental coverage is so vital to California residents. Medi-Cal is the name for the California Medi-Cal Assistance Program, the regions Medicaid program. Medi-Cal provides health and medical dental insurance coverage for qualified families and individuals in California. Does Medi-Cal Cover Dental? Yes, Medi-Cal covers a wide range of dental services through their Medi-Cal Dental Program. This benefit is included with your Medi-Cal coverage at little to no cost to you. To access Medi-Cal's dental services, you can visit a Medi-Cal dental provider. They will let you know what the best form of treatment is under your Medi-Cal dental coverage. If you have any questions or need help finding a Medi-Cal dental provider, call the Medi-Cal Dental Customer Service Line at 1-800-322-6384, or visit www.smilecalifornia.org. What Does Medi-Cal Cover for Dental? Medi-Cal dental coverage includes the following: Diagnostic and preventive dental hygiene (e.g., examinations, x-rays, and teeth cleanings) Emergency services for pain control Tooth extractions Fillings Root canal treatments (anterior/posterior) Crowns (prefabricated/laboratory) Scaling and root planing Periodontal maintenance Complete and partial dentures; and Orthodontics for kids who qualify Does Medi-Cal cover root canals? Yes, Medi-Cal dental will cover both anterior and posterior root canals. Does Medi-Cal cover braces? Orthodontics are only covered for kids who qualify for this type of specialist treatment under Medi-Cal's dental services. Why You Need Dental Insurance It is a fact that your mouth can give a clear sign of your overall health. This is because dental health and hygiene link to other areas of the body, including the heart. It is vital to visit the dentist on a regular basis, to make sure your oral health is not causing you any problems. That said, dental work can be costly. Even more costly as we get older, and our teeth and gums start to weaken. Medi-Cal dental helps all Medi-Cal members save money on preventative and restorative dental work. Here are some reasons why dental health insurance is so important: Insurance pays for expensive dental care. For some people, dental care means two visits a year for checkups and teeth cleaning. For others, it means thousands of dollars in restorative surgery bills. Whether you brush your teeth three times a day or not, dental problems can come without notice. To prevent paying expensive dental bills apply for Medi-Cal coverage and visit a Medi-Cal registered dentist. Medi-Cal will pay some or all of the costs of your dental procedures. Keep great oral health and hygiene. The best way to save money on dental health bills (besides applying for Medi-Cal coverage) is to keep up to date on the overall health of your mouth. Regular dental checkups will help to make sure that your oral health is checked. Medi-Cal dental will cover *routine checkups. Give your kids a head start. According to the Pew Center on the States, about 20% of a child's healthcare expenses come from dental costs. Tooth decay is one of the most common and preventable childhood diseases. It's five times more common than asthma and seven times more prevalent than fever in U.S kids. Twenty percent of kids 0-5 do not get yearly dental checkups. Kids with oral health problems have a hard time learning in school. The U.S Department of Health and Human Services estimates that kids lose over 51 million school hours per year due to dental issues. How to Apply for Medi-Cal Dental Coverage If you have Medi-Cal, you will be able to use your dental benefits at any Medi-Cal Dental provider in California.
