Dental, Vision, and Hearing
Original Medicare only covers dental, vision, and hearing when it is related to inpatient or outpatient medical needs.
In each section, we will detail what Medicare covers and then what you will need to purchase additional coverage for, should you need it.
Should you need additional coverage, the good news is we can help!
Medicare and dental insurance
Medicare has very limited dental coverage that is only meant to protect your general health in order for another Medicare-covered health service to go smoothly.
It does not cover routine checkups, cleanings, fillings, dentures (full or partial), or most tooth extractions.
The only way you can gain this kind of coverage is through a Medicare Advantage plan that includes these benefits or through a standalone dental insurance plan.
