Medicare Doesn't Cover my Dental Needs

  • Medicare does not currently cover dental care, leaving millions of people in pain and unable to get the care everyone needs to stay healthy.

  • 4,638,573 older adults and people with disabilities in Florida would be able to get important dental care and have lower health care costs if Medicare covered dental. ​

Our Seniors Are Left Behind!

By Peggy L., Duval County

“I know that some Medicare plans do include dental coverage, but the coverage is very limited.  Seniors that need dental care must pay out of pocket and the cost is just way too much.”
