Ah… insurance. A battle for many patients as well as providers. But if you plan to retire soon, you may want to pay special attention to your insurance benefits.
Retirees moving on to Medicare are often surprised when they learn routine dental care is not provided and can definitely experience some high out-of-pocket costs for special procedures.
There are a number of private options available for dental care, but make sure you do your homework. You will want to investigate if a plan has a waiting period or maximum amount of coverage. DentalPlans.com (not affiliated with us) has some tools on their site to help you explore what is or is not covered with different policies.
