Dental and Vision care is NOT provided by Medicare. This is a big concern for just about everyone on Medicare.
Dental and vision problems can be very costly. You can use our quoting tools to compare the monthly premiums and plan details of various dental and vision insurance plans that are available in your area. If you find one that meets your needs, you can easily enroll yourself.
DENTAL & VISION “INSURANCE” PLANS
DENTAL “DISCOUNT” PLANS
(Can be bundled with a Vision, Hearing, and Prescription Discount plan.)
Another way to save money on dental (as well as vision, hearing and prescription drugs) is with a “discount” plan. Direct Access Dental (administered by Careington) has negotiated discounted rates with contracted dental providers (over 250,000 locations nationwide) to save you 20% to 60% off their regular fees for exams, checkups, cleanings, deep cleanings, porcelain crowns, dentures, implants, braces, and hundreds of other procedures. Think of it like a membership club with volume pricing; just one visit to the dentist will often save you more than your annual membership fee. And unlike an insurance plan, there’s no waiting period, no forms to file, no limits on use, and no annual limits.
In most states, the Direct Access Dental-only plan is $7.90/mo. You can also choose to bundle it with participating Vision, Hearing, & Prescription Drug discount providers for only a few dollars more a month.
The Direct Access Dental Discount Program is administered by Careington.
There are two plans to choose from: Direct Access Value and Direct Access Premier. The monthly premium is the same for both plans; the difference is in the provider list and the negotiated prices that you will pay for treatments.
DA Value offers some of the best discounts that we have seen from any national network. Members save 20% to 60% on most dental procedures.
DA Premier offers the largest discount plan network of providers that we have ever seen. Members save 20% to 50% on most dental procedures.
With both plans you will receive discounts on regular exams, checkups, cleanings, deep cleaning, dentures, porcelain crowns, implants, braces, and hundreds of other procedures. Specialists are included, and there is no waiting, no restrictions on use, and no annual limits.
*Price is based on the 80th percentile of the 2014 National Dental Advisory Service Comprehensive Fee Report.
** Porcelain to high noble metal. Price is based on the 80th percentile of the 2014 National Dental Advisory Service Comprehensive Fee Report.
With plans starting at $7.90/mo, it’s an affordable choice for everyone!
For your convenience, Direct Access Dental gives you the option of bundling your dental discount plan with a Vision, Hearing, and RX (prescription drug) discount plan. (Please note that this prescription drug discount plan is not a substitute for a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Insurance plan.)
Here are your choices and prices you for Direct Access Value and Premier plans, and the the prices for the bundled packages. Premiums can be paid monthly or annually, and can cancel your plan at any time. (There is a one-time setup fee of $20 and a 10% discount for annual payments.)
