Due to Kristen’s autism, she is extremely sensitive to touch, which makes dental appointments difficult for her to endure. Her Medicaid pays for her dental work however, it does not pay for sedation that allows Kristen to undergo dental procedures.
Kristen uses her Special Needs Trust at Springhill Pooled Accounts Trust to pay for sedation that takes away her anxiety each time she goes to the dentist.
Contact Springhill Pooled Accounts Trust to learn how you can use your Special Needs Trust to pay for medical expenses that Medicaid does not cover.
