Maternity Dental Benefit Coverage


TO: All Providers

RE: Maternity Dental Benefit Coverage

The Alabama Medicaid Agency received approval to provide dental services to eligible pregnant recipients as of October 1, 2022. Eligible recipients who delivered or whose pregnancy ended on or after July 1, 2022, have continued to receive dental services beyond the 60 days postpartum period due to the continuous enrollment mandate associated with the public health emergency due to COVID-19. Effective October 1, 2024, pregnant adult recipients (age 21 and older) will only be eligible for these dental benefits during pregnancy and through the end of the month of 60 days postpartum when rendered by Alabama Medicaid enrolled dental providers.

Continue to refer to the Medicaid website,, for more information about COVID-19 and the end of continuous enrollment on March 31, 2023.
