Dental care is an essential part of every health plan and we want all of our clients at SBS to receive dental benefits that are available to them. Here is what you need to know to get the best dental health benefits with Medicare:
While Original Medicare does not provide basic dental health, there are additional plans that offer coverage to fit your needs and budget.
Medicare Advantage Plans combine Original Medicare Part A & B to offer dental benefits, working similar to traditional insurance in cost and coverage.
Benefits that come with most* Medicare Advantage Plans are:
- Teeth Cleaning
- Routine X-Ray
Some Medicare Advantage Plans even offer supplemental dental insurance that will cover complex dental procedures like tooth replacement, restoration, and dental implants.
While Original Medicare does not provide basic dental coverage, they do provide benefits if you are staying in a hospital. Any injuries to your jaw, mouth, or teeth that require hospital stay or surgery will be covered. Any medications needed for dental work during your stay are covered by Medicare Part A.
Make sure to ask your doctor and insurance agent about what would work for you, financially and medically. Ask as many questions as needed to get the service you deserve!
