Importance of Dental Care for OR Seniors
In addition to having health insurance or finding coverage with Medicare, it's important to also make sure to find coverage for your dental health. Unfortunately, because health insurance and Medicare don't cover senior dental care, only 2% of older Americans actually have this coverage. Here are some issues that seniors across the state (including Oregon) must face when finding dental insurance:
- Loss of dental insurance after retiring
- Medicare doesn't cover dental services, or coverage varies by state
- Out-of-pocket expenses for dental services are too high
- Limited supplemental coverage
- Limited access to dental care in nursing homes
Because of these reasons and more, dental coverage has been difficult to access for older Americans. This has led to a number of dental health problems, including 30% of seniors having untreated cavities. With dental insurance, you'll have coverage to receive the dental services you need without facing costly out-of-pocket expenses.
Your Oregon Dental Insurance Coverage
Typically, dental policies cover a number of different types of dental services. Your unique plan can tell you how soon you'll be able to receive coverage for a particular services after the waiting period ends. There are seven types of dental services you can get coverage for:
