Dental Plans, NOT Medical Insurance!

June 4, 2018

Here's an article you may find illuminating. 

Basic Medicare covers only a fraction of the procedures commonly prescribed in modern dentistry. Medicare Advantage plans often add basic preventive dental benefits like exams, x-rays, and cleanings. A dental supplement or standalone dental plan can add coverage for fillings, extractions, root canal, and crowns. But at the end of the day, don't assume your dental plan will cover you in the same manner your medical insurance does. Whereas medical insurance often covers a portion of your expenses no matter how high they rise, dental insurance typically carries a maximum annual benefit, leaving you on the hook for everything over and above that figure.

As with all these decisions, you can research them yourself, or consult with an expert (at no charge) and be done with the deliberations. Why are you still thinking about this?
