Q: Is it true that Medicare has no vision benefits?

Monday, April 17, 2017

A: Yes. And no. Medicare will not pay for a routine eye examination to see if you need new glasses. And they won’t pay for your glasses or your contacts either.

Q: What is NOT covered by Medicare?

Monday, April 10, 2017

A: There are quite a few services not covered by Part A and Part B. Lack of routine dental and vision benefits may come as an unpleasant surprise to people transitioning from employer group health plans who have become accustomed to these benefits during their working years. Hearing aids are not covered either. Although Medicare will cover short term medically necessary nursing home care in very specific cases, it will not pay for long term or custodial care. Medicare will pay for prescriptions if you sign up for Part D, but pays under Parts A and B under special circumstances.

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

A: Programs for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, or PACE programs, target people on Medicare and who need the level of care normally provided in a nursing home but prefer to receive the services in their community or their own home. The goal is one shared by patients and families alike – to allow older or disabled adults to age in place as opposed to entering an institution.
