Taking care of your dental health is important, especially as you get older. However, if you’re on Medicare, you may not have all the dental coverage you need. The good news is that there are other ways for seniors to make sure that their regular dental maintenance and oral treatments are covered.
Your Senior Dental Coverage Options
Medicare Parts A & B don’t include coverage for most dental services, including cleanings, fillings, x-rays and dentures, so you’ll need to shop for dental insurance. Fortunately, you have options. You can:
- keep your Medicare Part A & B plans and purchase a stand-alone senior dental policy;.
- switch to a Medicare Advantage (Part C) plan that includes dental coverage during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP); or
- choose the non-insurance option of a dental discount plan, which can help lower your dental bills.
