MCNA Dental is a dental plan for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission Medicaid and CHIP programs for the entire state of Texas. MCNA Dental has a large network of general and specialty dentists throughout Texas to make sure you can get the high quality dental care you need.

The Texas Medicaid and CHIP programs are available for children in Texas. These programs cover many of the costs of routine dental care. Your child may qualify for either Medicaid coverage or CHIP coverage. It depends on your family's income. Families with children who get Medicaid services have no co-payments. Children with CHIP get coverage at a very low cost. MCNA Dental administers the dental benefits for both of these programs.
