Are Dentures Covered By Medicare?
No, dentures are not covered by original Medicare (Parts A and B). Medicare generally doesn’t cover any dental services. It may cover the cost of emergency services and inpatient procedures, like extractions, but Medicare will not pay for dentures.
There are some Medicare Advantage plans (Part C) available that may cover the cost of dentures and other routine dental services including cleanings, exams, crowns, and root canals. However, not all Medicare Advantage plans offer dental benefits. If you’re unsure what is covered by your plan, you’ll want to talk with your Medicare insurance provider to learn more that way you don’t discover any surprises later on.
Dentures are a big investment. They typically start at around $2,500 for a single plate. So, if you’re looking for ways to make your dentures more affordable, shop around. Look for a dental office that provides high-quality dentures at a great value. Many dental offices strive to make their services affordable for everyone so they offer other payment options including payment plans and in-house financing.Back to Are Dentures Expensive?
