Envolve Dental Administering Benefits for Phase I - Former YouthCare HealthChoice Illinois Members

Beginning February 1, 2020

On February 1, 2020, Envolve Dental will offer benefits for Phase 1 former YouthCare HealthChoice Illinois members. The YouthCare HealthChoice Illinois plan was designed by Illinois Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) and Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) to serve former and current youth in care. The expansion for current YouthCare HealthChoice Illinois members who are still in DCFS custody will begin by April 1, 2020. UPDATE: The April 1 launch of YouthCare for youth currently in DCFS custody has been delayed by at least 30 days as state agencies focus on challenges associated with COVID-19.

A Continuity of Care (COC) period will be available from February 1 through September 30, 2020. Open authorizations will be honored throughout the COC period following submission of the approved authorization determination from the previous dental administrator.

Please refer to the benefit grids for Medicaid, as these benefits align with Medicaid member benefits.

You are encouraged to verify member eligibility and dental benefits prior to rendering services by logging onto the PWP at pwp.envolvedental.com, calling Envolve Dental Customer Service at 855-586-1415, or by sending an email to providerrelations@envolvehealth.com.

Thank you for being our partner in care. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you to provide quality dental services to YouthCare HealthChoice members.
