Planning for retirement? Don’t overlook your dental coverage.
Since oral health conditions like gum disease are connected to issues like diabetes and heart disease, maintaining a healthy smile is key to a happy, healthy lifestyle!
But what you may not know is Medicare doesn’t cover most dental services. In fact, Medicare Part A only covers dental services you receive in a hospital as part of treatment for another medical condition.
Which means, the cost of preventative care visits necessary to keep your smile healthy – including checkups, cleanings, fillings, crowns, and even dentures – is paid totally out-of-pocket.
Since the average cost of a preventive dental visit (exam, cleaning, x-ray, and fluoride) is $250-$300 in Washington state, paying as you go can add up quickly. And crowns and implants can cost thousands of dollars without dental coverage!
So, shop our plans below. Whether you’re looking for an affordable option with little to no deductible or want to spend a little bit more for peace of mind, our Individual & Family™ plans will help protect your smile for years to come.
