Many of our clients want to know if their Medigap plan offers any coverage for vision or dental. It’s actually broken up into routine care and serious emergencies/issues. The quick answer is sometimes Medigap covers your dental and vision, and sometimes it doesn’t. We’ll explain below.
Medigap and Vision Care
While Medigap will cover cataract surgery costs , or serious vision issues, most vision care (eye exams, glasses, contacts) is not covered by Medigap. For routine care, you can get a stand alone vision plan.
Medigap and Dental Care
Neither Medicare nor Medigap cover routine dental care such as teeth cleaning, fillings and tooth extractions. However, there is coverage for emergency oral surgery that takes place in the hospital. Medigap can cover your Part A deductible and coinsurance.
