2018 Supplemental Dental, Vision and Hearing

An optional plan from BCN AdvantageSM

Worried about how you'll pay for expensive dental work with Medicare? Wondering whether hearing aids are covered by your plan?

Original Medicare doesn't cover preventive dental, vision or hearing. That means you pay out of pocket when you see the dentist or eye doctor, or when you get a routine hearing test. Your expenses can really add up.

If you have one of the following 2018 BCN Advantage plans, you have the option to pay a little extra each month for a dental, vision and hearing plan that covers some of the costs.

  • BCN Advantage HMO
  • HMO-POS Basic
  • HMO-POS Classic

  • HMO HealthySaver
  • HMO MyChoice Wellness
  • HMO-POS Elements
  • HMO-POS Prestige

  • What it covers
    • Fillings, root canals, simple tooth extractions, crowns and crown repairs with 50 percent coinsurance
    • Dental fluoride treatments and brush biopsies with no copay
    • Up to $1,000 per year for dental care
    • Up to $200 for glasses or contacts every two years
