It’s time for Medicare to cover dental.
I understand how important oral health is to overall health. I know the link to heart disease, to diabetes and to strokes. I know we pay into Medicare our entire working lives. That’s why I believe Medicare should cover every part of our body, including our mouths.
Count me among those willing to tell Congress the time has come: Medicare should include dental coverage, an approach that could actually save money by preventing more expensive health issues later on.
