Does Medicare Cover Dental Implants? (Cont.)

What Are Some Other Ways I Can Pay for Dental Implants?

Transitioning to a new set of dental implants is a process that takes a lot of time and a considerable amount of money. Most people would probably consider dental implants to be expensive. But no matter the cost, those who have enjoyed the restored function delivered by dental implants will likely tell you it was worth every penny.

A premium Medicare Advantage plan that covers dental implants can certainly help bring down the cost of dental implants, but even the best rated coverage could still leave you on the hook for thousands of dollars to pay your portion. However, there are other approaches you can use in conjunction with a good Medicare Advantage plan to fit your new teeth into your budget.

Consider these avenues to help make dental implants more affordable:

Additional dental insurance – consider high-end dental coverage outside of a Medicare plan. This route can help lower the cost of your implants and procedures, but make sure you’re aware of any waiting periods before you sign on.

A credit account – specialized dental credit accounts can help you fund dental implants at a monthly price that fits comfortably into your budget.

A payment plan – while good credit can help immensely in securing financing for your implants, you may be able to work out a payment plan through the dental practice that has agreed to place your dental implants. This option isn’t feasible for everyone, but it could put you over the top if you’re close to your financing goal.

When Can I Enroll in a Medicare Plan?

Medicare Advantage enrollment isn’t open all the time for everyone. Here are a few times you may be eligible to enroll in a Medicare plan. Please note that all these enrollment periods require that you are already enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B (Original Medicare).

If your 65th birthday is this year: you may be eligible for your Initial Enrollment Period, which begins three months before your birthday month and continues for three months after your birthday month.

If it is October, November, or December: it may be the Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP), when Medicare Advantage enrollment is open to all Medicare beneficiaries. This election period occurs every year from October 15 through December 7.

All other circumstances: at any point during the year, you may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period due to specific circumstances. Some examples:

  • You recently moved (to different housing, or out of an institution)
  • You recently left employer health coverage
  • A 5-star Medicare plan is available in your area

Special Enrollment Periods can be triggered by many circumstances, and they have different enrollment lengths and requirements. A licensed insurance agent can help you identify if you are eligible.
