  • I am on Wisconsin Medicaid and they cover it, you have to have a regular dentist refer you to an oral sugeon and then it is covered. My son is having 4 teeth pulled by oral surgery and it is being covered 100%. Thank goodness because I don't have $1100 to do it, I barely make that in a month.

  • im in illinois and it is not covered when u see an oral surgeon for it. My last wisdom tooth i had to have pulled last month and my reg dentist could do it so it was covered. My advise is call around to dentists and see if anybody will take idpa and if they can pull it without referring you. I lived on ibuprofen for months before i found my dentist. Good luck!
