Adding Dental And Vision Care To Your Medicare Plan

Regular eye exams and teeth cleanings can help you stay healthy by catching issues and illnesses early. However, Original Medicare does not cover routine dental and vision care. This means you’ll have to pay out of pocket for routine teeth cleanings and eye exams, as well as more costly procedures and services.

Enhance Your Medicare Advantage Plan With Dental And Vision


While most Medicare Advantage plans cover preventive dental care like teeth cleanings and exams, as well as vision care with eye exams and eyewear allowances, sometimes that’s not enough.  


If you need crowns or dental repair work, or if you have special eyewear needs, your out-of-pocket costs could add up.


You might want to consider adding more coverage with these optional benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental And Vision Care

Routine dental, vision, and hearing care are included with the majority of Medicare Advantage plans. Some plans give you more enhanced coverage for your teeth and eyes, while others provide only basic checkups. It's important to carefully review the details of your Medicare Advantage plan to know what kind of dental and vision care is covered.

If you think you’ll only need routine checkups and occasional fillings, then a basic dental plan might be a good choice. But, if you expect to need more serious dental work done, like oral surgery or a crown, you may want an enhanced plan. While these plans can be more expensive, they can help you save money down the road.

Typically, Medicare does not pay for dentures. However, certain plans from Anthem cover 50% of your costs.

If you have Original Medicare, it probably doesn’t include dental or vision benefits. Adding coverage for routine teeth cleanings and eye exams, or for enhanced care like root canals or progressive lenses, can help you stay healthy by catching issues early.


With Medicare Advantage, basic dental and vision care typically is included, but you can add optional packages for more comprehensive coverage.
