Optional Supplemental Dental and Vision Plan
From BCNSM Advantage
When you have Medicare, dental and vision costs can be a big pain point. Original Medicare doesn't include preventive dental or vision coverage, which means you pay out of pocket when you see the dentist or eye doctor. And if you need dental work on a regular basis or wear glasses, your expenses can really add up.
Most of our Medicare Advantage plans cover preventive dental and vision checkups. But a lot of them don't cover dental work, glasses or contacts.
If you have a BCN Advantage HMO-POS or HMO plan, you have the option to pay a little extra each month for a dental and vision plan that covers some of those costs.
You can add this feature to all BCN Advantage plans:
|HMO Local||HMO MyChoice Wellness|
|HMO-POS Basic||HMO-POS Elements|
|HMO-POS Classic||HMO-POS Prestige|
What it covers
- Fillings, root canals, simple tooth extractions, crowns and crown repairs with 50 percent coinsurance. Pays up to $1,000 per year.
- Dental fluoride treatments and brush biopsies with no copay.
- $200 toward glasses or contacts every two years.
