Senior Dental Insurance Basics
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to senior dental insurance. We address the main dental issues in the three points below.
1) Medicare or Medigap Dental?
Neither Medicare nor Medigap supplemental insurance plans will cover dental services. If you are a senior and want dental insurance, you will have to buy a separate policy.
2) Senior-Specific Dental Plans?
Some companies, like Delta Dental, offer special plans designed for seniors, while other companies allow seniors to purchase the same coverage as those under 65.
3) Do Seniors Need Dental Insurance?
Older people who haven’t had a history of dental problems still need to see a dentist. Seniors have the highest rate of oral cancer and dentists often spot the disease first.
