Does Medicare cover dental?
The short answer to that question is no, Original Medicare (part a & b), does not cover your everyday type dental care BUT there are ways to get your dental covered and we will show you how.
A visit to Medicare website will get you this answer.
“Medicare doesn’t cover most dental care, dental procedures, or supplies, like cleanings, fillings, tooth extractions, dentures, dental plates, or other dental devices”.1 Of course, there are some exceptions. Certain in-patient procedures and severe medical cases but that’s probably not what you are meant when you ask “Does Medicare Cover Dental?”. As a result, we have information below.
I believe you shouldn’t have to take no as an answer and I will show you that yes,
There are ways for you to get dental coverage with your Medicare and those include:
1) Some Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C) include dental coverage at no extra cost.
2) Some of the newer Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap) called “Innovative” Plans do come with certain dental benefits.
3) Get yourself a stand-alone dental plan there are many to choose from.
