Medicare Additional Coverage

Medicare Dental, Vision, or Hearing Services

Original Medicare and Medicare Supplements do not cover dental, vision, or hearing services.

However, some Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans do. They include:


  • Annual exams
  • Cleanings
  • Crowns
  • Dentures
  • Bridges


  • Annual vision exams
  • Eyeglasses
  • Contacts


  • Hearing exams
  • Hearing aids

Medicare Part B (health insurance) may cover diseases or conditions related to eye care like diabetic screenings, glaucoma tests, and macular degeneration.

Also, Part B would only cover dental- or hearing-related services if they were in conjunction with a physical injury requiring medical treatment.

Medicare Mental Health Services and Prescriptions

Medicare provides comprehensive coverage for mental health.

Medicare Part A and Part B cover inpatient hospitalization, therapy, and outpatient treatment at Medicare-approved providers. You may have to pay copays, deductibles, and coinsurance.

Medicare Part D also covers mental health-related medications.

Medicare Disability Coverage

Regardless of your age, you can qualify for Medicare benefits if you are eligible for Social Security disability.

You still have some out-of-pocket expenses like copays and deductibles.

Like retirement-age Americans, you can also enroll in a Medicare Supplement or a Medicare Advantage plan if you have a disability.

Long Term Care, Skilled Nursing, and Hospice Medicare Coverage

Medicare does not cover custodial long term care.

Instead, Medicare covers temporary stays in a skilled nursing facility following a recent hospitalization.

Also, Medicare covers the bulk of hospice care and medications. It also includes respite care, so caretakers can have a break for a few days.

Medicare for Diabetes

Medicare Parts A and B provide robust coverage for managing diabetes, like diabetic supplies and services. Medicare Part D offers prescription drug coverage.

Medicare Advantage is also a good option for diabetic care. Some plans include fitness programs like SilverSneakers.

You would pay deductibles and coinsurance, so most people prefer to add a Medicare supplement to help cover the costs
