Does Medicare Cover Dental Insurance?

Medicare covers certain preventive and diagnostic exams, treatments, and surgeries; however, your clients may not be aware of the components of dental care covered by Medicare.  Having complete information about Medicare benefits is essential for making decisions regarding dental health. 

Does Medicare cover Dental? 

No, Parts A & B does not include dental coverage. Part C (Medicare Advantage) can cover dental depending on the carrier as a value-added service, but the options are very limited. It is typically better to find outside options. 

Does Medicare cover Dentures?  

No, Parts A & B do not cover dentures. Part C (Medicare Advantage) can cover dentures as a value-added service, but the options are quite limited and depends on the carrier. It is usually better to look for alternative options. 

Does Medicare cover Implants? 

No, Parts A & B do not cover implants.  Again, Part C (Medicare Advantage) can cover implants but it depends on the carrier and the options are limited. It is usually better to find outside options. 

It is to be noted that the current administration is pushing to add Dental coverage to Parts A & B.
