What is the Developmentally Disabled Treatment Fund (DDTF)?
There is a limited amount of money set aside by the MI Legislature to help fill gaps
in dental coverage for developmentally disabled individuals.
How does this program work?
1. This is a fund of last resort. Clients that have dental insurance or other means to
pay for dental services are NOT eligible for this fund. Clients that have Medicaid
can utilize this fund only if access to a Medicaid dentist is not available. This
limited amount of funding is reserved for those with no other funding source
available (including family).
2. All treatment must be approved for payment before the work is done. The DDTF
cannot pay for dental services already performed.
3. The maximum allowable benefit per client per year is $1,800. Exceptions may be
made on a case by case basis.

of the dentist to accept or decline the case.

not esthetic or non-emergency care.
