Dental & Vision for Medicare Eligibles in Georgia

What dental and vision benefits does Medicare cover? Original Medicare doesn’t pay for most preventive or routine dental or vision care. That means if you need a regular dental exam or a vision exam for standard contact lenses or eyeglasses, Medicare will not usually pay for it. Here’s some information on what Medicare does cover.

Does Medicare cover dental and vision?

Dental

Medicare usually only pays for dental care that is needed to diagnosis or treat an illness.

Unless you have dental coverage you will have to pay for your regular dental cleanings, exams, and X-rays.

If you need more expensive procedures, that you don’t receive as regularly, such as fillings, bridges, crowns, plates, or dentures, Medicare does not pay for those either.

Vision

Medicare usually only pays for vision exams or eyewear related to specific illnesses or surgeries such as those related to cataracts, diabetes, or macular degeneration.

You will need additional vision insurance outside of basic Medicare to help pay for your regular eye exams, glasses, lenses, and contacts.

If you are looking for dental and vision coverage, we can help. Dental and vision benefits are built right into some of our Medicare plans. In some states we also have dental and vision packages that you can add on to another plan or purchase separately.
