From 1 January 2018, young adults will receive a free visit to the dentist at age 21 and 24 years.
If you do not have children, you have probably never heard of meT teeth. Behind this acronym hides the full coverage by the Health Insurance of certain appointments of prevention at the dentist.
So far, the M’T Teens visits were reserved for children aged 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 years old. One month before their birthday, you receive an invitation letter from the Health Insurance for a dental prevention appointment.
But as of January 1st, young adults will also be able to benefit from additional visits fully covered by the Health Insurance. An order published on April 25 in the Official Journal set the age of these other appointments at 21 years and 24 years.
And If You Have To Care?
When the dentist discovers that the child or teenager needs additional care (caries and root treatment, scaling, furrow sealing, etc.), these are covered 100% by Health Insurance. This care must, however, be performed within nine months of the examination.
If your child is 6 or 12 years old: you benefit from the fee waiver, and you do not have money to advance.
If your child is 9, 15 or 18 years old: it is up to you to advance the fees, but you will be reimbursed quickly.
The extension of visits M’T teeth is aimed primarily at students who give up oral care for lack of financial means.
