I am currently 42 I’m on disability and have medicare however, this does not cover vision or dental. I am on some pretty heavy drugs and some off the side effects are decaying teeth, which I have been dealing with. I also need new glasses my vision is getting worse also. I don’t understand why it’s not possible to get help with these items. After paying my bills every month i don’t have any extra money for these items. I went to Medicaid and they help but only a spend down which was 580.00 if i had that much I’d be able to get new glasses. If there is anything you can do to help me please let me know.
If you get a Marketplace plan that includes dental and vision you can use cost assistance. Medicaid includes dental and vision too, but no coverage will cover major costs related to dental and vision. Hopefully soon someone will acknowledge that dental health is important and do more to regulate that awfully low maximum. In the meantime are lots of private charities that can help.
