Currently Medicare does not cover vision, hearing and dental services. Approximately 90 percent of people with Parkinson’s receive health insurance coverage through Medicare.
Right now, Congress is debating whether to expand Medicare benefits and provide coverage for vision, hearing, and dental care and treatment services. Some people with Parkinson’s may experience vision problems, hearing loss, or weakened chewing and swallowing. It’s critical for our community to have access to this type of care.
Email your Senators and Representative today and tell them how important vision, hearing and dental benefits are to you and your family.
