iCare partners with dental network DentaQuest to provide residents of Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Washington, and Waukesha counties with all covered dental services, but you must go to DentaQuest dentist. 

See the iCare Medicaid SSI Provider Directory for your region or call DentaQuest at 1-888-291-3760 or iCare  at 1-800-777-4376 for the names of our in-network dentists.

As a member of iCare, you have the right to a routine dental visit within 90 days of your request either in writing or over the phone to the iCare Customer Service at 1-800-777-4376. If you have a dental emergency, you have the right to obtain treatment within 24 hours of your request. A dental emergency is a need for fast dental services to treat severe dental pain, swelling, fever, infection, or injury to the teeth. If you are having a dental emergency:

1. If you already have a dentist who is with DentaQuest:

  • Call the dentist’s office.
  • Tell the dentist’s office that you or your child is having a dental emergency.
  • Tell the dentist’s office what the exact dental problem is. This may be something like a severe toothache or swollen face.
  • Call iCare or DentaQuest if you need help with getting a ride to or from your dental visit.

2. If you do not have a dentist who is with DentaQuest:

  • Call DentaQuest or iCare. Tell us that you or your child is having a dental emergency. We can help you get dental services.
  • Tell us if you need help with getting a ride to or from the dentist’s office.

For help with a dental emergency, call iCare at 1-800-777-4376 or DentaQuest at 1-888-291-3760.

If you live in a county that is not listed, you may get dental services from any dentist willing to accept your ForwardHealth ID card. Your dental services are provided by the State, not iCare or DentaQuest.

Medically-needed home health services (skilled nursing, home health aide, and therapy) are covered following your inpatient hospital stay, if ordered by the doctor. However, you need prior authorization from iCare for this benefit. Please call us at 1-800-777-4376 for approval.

Flu Shots


Each fall, iCare helps our members receive flu shots. A yearly flu shot is one of the best ways to protect your health and the health of your friends and family. Getting a flu shot is a good idea for most people. It’s even more vital for children, people with asthma or diabetes, and adults over age 50 to receive the shot.

Women's Health


iCare and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that women age 40 and older have a mammogram each year. A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast used to examine breast tissue. It is one of the best ways to detect breast cancer. Please call iCare at 1-800-777-4376 to find out more about this program.
