Because dental is not included in Original Medicare (unless medically necessary) or Medigap supplement plans, seniors must look elsewhere for dental care coverage.
One option is that you could enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, just be aware that dental benefits are usually limited to cleanings, exams, and bitewing X-rays. So make sure you know the benfits offered and the plan limitations on services
Another option is that you buy your own individual dental insurance plan. There are different dental insurance plan types. If you are low income or fixed budget you may want to review a dental HMO insurance plan as they are the more affordable dental insurance option.
However if you have a dentist you like to stay with that dose not accept dental HMO insurance plan the you will want to review dental PPO’s plan instead as they let you choose inside or outside plan proviers.
