Does medicaid/health choice help pay for braces?

Not sure if this needs should be here or in insurance questions, but my daughter will need braces in about 10 months. I have health choice health insurance for her. Does anyone know if they help pay for them? Or will I have to pay the thousands of dollars for them?

Thanks in advance

I don't think Medicaid pays for braces unless her teeth were so bad that it affected her health in a serious way. Most private dental insurance doesn't pay for braces either, at least not all of it. Maybe someone else knows different.
