Medicare doesn't cover most dental care, nor do Medigap plans, even though it's an important part of oral and overall health. Some Medicare Advantage plans (Part C) offer benefits that original Medicare doesn't cover - like dental care.
We're pleased to announce Delta Dental of South Dakota will administer dental benefits in a new Medicare Advantage plan that begins coverage on January 1, 2022. Dental benefits information for Medicare Advantage plan members will be available on this webpage as it becomes available during the traditional enrollment period this fall.
