2024 Anthem Medicare Dental and Vision Coverage

For all the benefits that Original Medicare (Medicare Part A and Part B) offers, there are two glaring things missing from Original Medicare coverage: routine dental and vision care.

Fortunately for Medicare beneficiaries, many Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C) plans like the ones offered by Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) can offer dental and vision coverage. Anthem Medicare Advantage plans may also offer health and prescription drug benefits.


What dental benefits can some Anthem Medicare Advantage plans cover?

An Anthem Medicare Advantage plan with dental benefits may include coverage for:

  • Routine exams
  • Teeth cleanings
  • X-rays
  • Root canals
  • Extractions
  • Dentures and bridges

Some of preventive dental services may come with $0 copays, while other comprehensive dental care benefits may be covered up to an annual allowed amount.

The dental benefits included in a plan may vary from one Anthem Medicare Advantage plan to another. All Anthem Medicare Advantage plans also include the limited dental coverage provided by Original Medicare.

What vision benefits can some Anthem Medicare Advantage plans cover?

Anthem Medicare Advantage plans that include vision benefits may cover some of the following services:

  • Routine eye exams
  • Glasses frames
  • Prescription lenses
  • Contact lenses

Some routine eye exams may come with $0 copays, and an Anthem Medicare Advantage plan may provide you with an annual allowance to use toward the cost of eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Vision benefits may vary by plan. Anthem Medicare Advantage plans also include the limited vision benefits provided by Original Medicare.

How do I find dentists and eye doctors who accept Anthem Medicare Advantage plans?

Some Anthem Medicare Advantage plans may require you to visit dentists or eye doctors who are part of your Anthem plan network.
