Get Instant Access In this video I answer the question, "Does Medicare cover dental?" I also discuss what dental expenses are covered and which are not. Tips are given on choosing a Medicare Plan to increase dental coverage.
Senior dental insurance is expensive so it's only natural to expect that dental is covered by the Medicare program. After all, routine dental and restorative procedures such as dental crowns, bridges and dentures can put a big dent in your budget.
Medicare was never intended to offer comprehensive coverage. Dental, vision and hearing aides are seen as extras and the focus is on inpatient stays and outpatient procedures, doctor's visits and tests.
Many people think that buying a Medicare supplement will give them dental coverage, but sadly this is not the case.
A Medicare Advantage Plan will often include extra benefits like dental and vision. Medicare Advantage dental benefits can come in one of two ways. Benefits can be as a dental discount or as a dental insurance rider.

My final answer to, "Does Medicare cover dental?", is sometimes… but not comprehensively.
wtf? why doesn’t Medicaid cover dental work but they will cover everything
+ronald morris They really don’t cover everything else. The video is not
about Medicaid coverage it is about Medicare coverage.
Thanks for the information. The bottom line is to set aside funds for any
upcoming dental needs. I figured that.
Great video and very informative. I was just telling my friend this and she
did not believe me. Well now she has it. Medicare does not cover Dental
Bridges or Dentures. Medicare has very limited benefits. Thank you.
I just dropped medicare part b. It’s allot cheaper for me to pay my doctor
in cash. Don’t believe the hype. And i still get part a fpr free. The
doctors office says it’s cheaper for me to pay cash then paying the $105
for medicare. Do the math people.
More comprehensive coverage would be nice, I agree… but paying for it is
another matter. Sure… we have all the money we can print! Problem is…
the only thing behind that money is IOUs. Money from thin air only dilutes
the value of the money you hold.
Ok video, It really sucks that Medicare will not cover dental. They need to
cover , dental ,vision and hearing. Medicare needs to end this stupid 20%
and provide full coverage. We have money to bail out the country Greece,
but no money to bail out Social Security disability. Congress was talking
about oh we don’t have money for Social Security. Greece was facing
financial collapse and all of a sudden the money was available by the U.S.
Greece had gotten money from EU to help them out.
