Ryan White Oral Health Program
The Ryan White Part B Program is partnering with Guardian Insurance to administer TN’s oral health insurance plan. This plan provides recipients with comprehensive oral health benefits, lower cost of oral health care services, access to a large network of Dentists. Tennessee Department of Health and United Way of Greater Nashville created processes for enrollment, eligibility, claims adjudication, tracking claims and balances. The Oral Health Program is available to eligible Ryan White individuals who have no dental coverage and currently reside in all counties of Tennessee except for Tipton, Shelby, and Fayette counties, as these counties are covered in the Ryan White Part A Memphis oral health program.
Starting January 1, 2023, all adult TennCare members will have dental benefits. Adult members will now be able to see a dentist at no cost to them for all medically necessary, covered dental services, which consist of regular exams, x-rays, cleanings, fillings, crowns, and more.
