There are Medicare Advantage plans that will help cover the cost of dental treatments.
Did you know that more than half of seniors over the age of 65 have to delay their dental care due to high costs?
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), most seniors lose their dental insurance upon retirement, at a time when they need coverage the most. For example, two-thirds of adults over the age of 65 have gum disease, one in five have untreated tooth decay, and one in five have lost all of their teeth.
If you are aged 65+, it is important to consider dental insurance as part of your retirement plan. You may be wondering if your Medicare plan will cover dental costs. The answer, unfortunately, is usually no, unless you have an extenuating circumstance. There are, however, Medicare Advantage plans that will help cover the cost of dental treatments.
