Every child deserves a perfect smile. That's why Dr. Gorin is a proponent of no child being left behind when it comes to orthodontic treatment.

Dr. Gorin will provide orthodontic treatment for your child at no cost* if the case meets all of the following criteria:

 

  • The patient is covered under Medicaid orthodontic benefits.

  • Dr. Gorin has examined the patient and has determined that the case fits within the guidelines of the NYS Medicaid orthodontic rehabilitation program. Additionally, Dr. Gorin took a complete set of orthodontic records, formulated a narrative, and submitted the record set and narrative to the Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MCO) requesting comprehensive orthodontic treatment.

  • The patient has at least 1 of the 6 automatic qualifying HLD reporting indices.

  • The patient has been denied comprehensive orthodontic care by the MCO.

  • The patient received an adverse determination after a formal internal appeal to the MCO was considered.

  • The patient’s representative was present at a fair hearing and an administrative judge ruled in favor of the plan’s decision to deny care.

  • Dr. Gorin has had an opportunity to review the judge's decision, has discussed the denials with the patient’s representative and believes that the case remains within the guidelines of approvability.
