Does Aetna Medicare cover dental?

Certain Aetna Medicare Advantage plans may offer coverage for dental care.

Medicare Part A will pay for certain dental services when you’re in the hospital. It doesn’t cover routine dental care. Aetna Medicare Advantage plans offer the same coverage as Original Medicare, and some plans may offer additional benefits that cover routine dental services like cleanings and fillings.

What dental services may be covered by an Aetna Medicare plan?

If you enroll in an Aetna Medicare Advantage plan that includes dental coverage, some of the services that may be covered include:

  • Teeth cleaning, scaling and polishing
  • Office visits for oral examinations
  • Non-surgical extractions
  • Fillings
  • Minor denture adjustments
  • X-rays
  • Oral hygiene instruction
  • Dietary advice and counseling
  • Minor bite adjustments

Plan details vary and some plans may provide broader dental coverage than others. Check your plan’s Explanation of Coverage (EOC) to see exactly what dental coverage benefits may be offered by your plan.

If your Aetna Medicare Advantage plan offers dental benefits, the costs for your covered dental services may be included in the plan’s premium or as an Optional Supplemental Benefit, which means you would need to pay an additional premium.

An Aetna Medicare Advantage plan that covers dental care may offer the benefits through an allowance or via a network of approved dental care providers.

If your Aetna Medicare plan offers dental coverage through an allowance, you pay up front and submit a receipt for reimbursement. You can see any licensed dental care provider for approved services.

If your Aetna Medicare plan offers dental benefits through a network of providers, you’re required to see an approved in-network provider for covered services.

How do I enroll in an Aetna Medicare Advantage plan?

A licensed insurance agent can help you compare Aetna Medicare Advantage plans available where you live.

Speak with a licensed insurance agent by calling TTY Users: 711 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
