Medicare on its own does not come with dental benefits beyond those related to a covered procedure, notes the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. However, members can purchase an add-on plan called Medicare Advantage to get dental care, and some of the companies offering these plans contract with Delta Dental.
PriorityHealth is one private company that works with Delta Dental for its Medicare Advantage plans. This kind of plan costs an additional fee and is known as a Part C plan, notes the Medicare website. Those who purchase this extra coverage may benefit from free or discounted exams, cleanings, X-rays and repairs. Those interested enroll directly through the company offering the add-on plan rather than through Delta Dental directly.
