What is supplemental dental insurance?

Original Medicare (Parts A and B) doesn't cover most dental care, services or products.

Supplemental dental insurance is a separate dental plan with an additional premium that can be paired with a Medicare Advantage plan or a primary dental plan to enhance your dental benefits. Depending on the plan you choose, supplemental dental insurance can lower the amount of money you owe out of pocket when paying for dental work.1

What does supplemental dental insurance cover?

Most supplemental dental plan options offer unique benefits which allow you choose the dental coverage that best fits your needs.

Common dental benefits covered under supplemental dental insurance include:

  • Exams
  • Teeth cleanings
  • X-rays
  • Fillings
  • Anesthesia
  • Dentures and crowns

Before purchasing a specific supplemental dental plan, be sure you understand what’s covered and how much of the cost the plan will cover.
