Dental care, eyewear and hearing aids

All of our Medicare plans include dental, eyewear and hearing benefits. Compare our plans and find the coverage that's best for you.


Learn about these benefits

Dental, eyewear and hearing coverage is offered through a network plan or as a direct member reimbursement (DMR). You can find specific plan information in the Evidence of Coverage (EOC).

Direct member reimbursement

A DMR is an annual allowance to see any licensed provider in the U.S. that has not opted out of Medicare. Members will pay out of pocket and then submit a form to get reimbursed up to the plan’s allowance.


Using a participating provider for covered services generally costs less. 

Dental benefits

Dental health is a big part of your total health and wellness. That’s why our plans offer dental coverage.


2022 Dental coverage

Our plans include our Total Choice Dental benefit which allows you to receive dental services from an Aetna Dental® PPO network provider or a provider not in our network. If you see a network provider, we have contracted rates with these providers that allow you to get more coverage. If you choose to see a provider not in our network that is willing to bill us directly you will not be required to submit for reimbursement.  

To find an Aetna Dental PPO network provider, visit our online directory


Note: Out of network providers are not required to bill us directly, but many will.  If not, you can pay for covered services at the time you get care and send us information, like a receipt and reimbursement form, to get reimbursed.


Eyewear benefit

We pay up to an annual allowance maximum for non-Medicare covered prescription eyewear. You are responsible for any amount above the eyewear coverage limit. You may see any licensed vision provider in the U.S. To be reimbursed for your eyewear, you must complete and mail the medical reimbursement form. See below for instructions for submitting for reimbursement.

Hearing benefit

Your hearing is important to your health and wellness. Because of this, all of our plans include coverage for hearing aids through a network provider.  Our plan has teamed up with NationsHearing to provide your hearing exam and hearing aid benefit.  Hearing aids must be purchased through them to be covered.


We pay up to an annual allowance maximum per ear for hearing aids. You are responsible for any amount above the hearing aid coverage limit. 


All appointments must be scheduled through NationsHearing by calling 1-877-225-0137 (TTY: 711).
