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.

​Screening:
1.  The screening process is performed by the Salvation Army Plymouth Corps. 
      If the patient meets the eligibility criteria for treatment, it will be at the discretion 
      of the dentist to accept or decline the case.
2.   A dentist will perform the needed treatment based on an EMERGENCY NEED ONLY, 
      not esthetic or non-emergency care.

Second Chance at Life is proud to provide financial assistance to individuals pre- or 
post-transplant through one of our three assistance programs. We also provide fund-
ing to the emergency funds at Transplant Centers throughout Michigan.
DENTAL ASSISTANCE:
Second Chance at Life’s Dental Assistance Program grants money to pre-transplant 
patients. All patients wanting to get on the transplant list must obtain dental clearance.
If a patient has untreated dental issues, their risk of infection is high and makes them 
a poor candidate for transplantation. After a transplant, patients must maintain good 
dental health in order to minimize the chance of infection and rejection of the trans-
planted organ.
