Medicare Advantage may offer Dental, Vision and Hearing Benefits
Dental health is strongly tied to your overall health. Medicare does not offer dental vision or hearing benefits. Health plans with additional benefits can help you take care of your overall health and well-being. Many people are choosing a Medicare Advantage (MA) plan instead of Original Medicare. MA plans include all of what is covered by Original Medicare and often include extra coverage for routine vision, hearing and dental services. In fact, about 90 percent of Medicare Advantage plans include at least one of these benefits, and more than half include all three.
