Will Medicare pay?

Some people on Medicare who need expensive services and procedures expect that Medicare will pay for all costs as long as a doctor ordered the care. Sorry folks, it won't happen.

Original Medicare doesn't cover most dental care, procedures, supplies or dentures. A Medicare Advantage plan may offer some dental coverage depending on the plan. A Medicare Supplement plan won't cover dental but a rider to the supplement or a private insurance company may for an additional premium.

Medicare also does not cover routine hearing exams or hearing aids. Medicare Part B will cover diagnostic hearing and balance exams only if your doctor orders these tests to see if you need treatment for a medical condition.

Medicare doesn't cover routine eye exams for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but there are some vision services that Medicare will cover. Medicare Part B covers a glaucoma test once every 12 months for people at high risk for glaucoma. Part B covers certain diagnostic tests and treatment for people with diseases and conditions of the eye such as age-related macular degeneration.

Medicare doesn't usually pay for eyeglasses or contact lenses except after cataract surgery that implants an intraocular lens.

Again, riders can be purchased to help with these expenses but be sure to read the fine print of the policy. Make sure the policy provides enough benefit to warrant the extra premium.

If you have questions about Medicare, call the senior center at 272-3620 to schedule an appointment with the SHICK counselor.
