Does Medical Insurance Cover Implant Treatment?
Posted on December 26, 2014
Medical insurance plans are beginning to cover procedures such as bone grafting, although processing claims for this procedure has become more complicated. There are also some instances when medical insurance coverage is available for people who have medical complications as a result of complete tooth loss. Benefits are solely dependent upon the individual policy.
Injuries related to work and some types of accidents are sometimes covered by medical insurance. There is no Medicare benefit for dental implant treatment. Since coverage is pretty rare, it is probably safe to assume that there is no medical insurance coverage available when calculating the overall out of pocket costs for dental implant treatment.
