Medicare supplement and Dental Insurance – Better Together
You have a built-in target market. If you are selling Medicare supplement, there are a number of reasons you should be offering your Medicare clients a dental policy.
First, good dental care is important to overall health. But do you know Medicare doesn’t cover dental services? That means dental bills have the potential to take a bite out of people’s savings.
Second, there is a need among individuals age 65 and older for dental insurance***.
- 87% of this group still have their natural teeth
- Due to cost, 1 in 5 of them has untreated tooth decay and fewer than half see a dentist even once a year
- Only 12% have dental insurance
Third, it is an easy sale. If you are taking a Medicare Supplement e-App the dental plans are quoted up front and with a few simple questions at the end of the app you can complete a dental sale. Also, all Medicare Supplement paper apps have the dental application included in the application book. And with Mutual of Omaha’s mobile quote app you can provide your clients a quote on the spot.
You may order marketing materials through normal channels. You can also view/download items on SPA in Forms and Materials under Product Type – Dental.

Make sure you are providing your Medicare clients insurance for all their health care needs.
