Do Medigap plans cover prescription drugs?

In most cases, prescription drugs are not covered, unless they are needed under a service provided by Part A or Part B.

For prescription coverage, you’ll want to look into either a Part D plan or a MAPD plan (a Medicare Advantage plan with prescription drug coverage).

Do Medigap plans cover dental services?

Routine dental coverage for exams, cleanings, fillings, crowns, and bridges is NOT covered by Medigap plans.

You can get coverage for dental procedures from some Medicare Advantage policies.

If you don’t enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, the only dental benefits that Original Medicare provides are:

  • Jaw reconstruction after an accident or other medical procedures.
  • Tooth extraction directly due to a disease of the jaw.
  • Dental exams required due to a complicated surgical procedure that takes place in a hospital, not a dentist’s office.
