What’s inside

For the 64 million Americans on Medicare, health care costs – which are expected to increase five percent next year – are a heavy burden, especially for those who are living on a fixed income.

When it comes to dental insurance, in particular, finding coverage that’s simple, easy to understand, and affordable has been a significant source of frustration for many.

Older adults have dental plans that can be complicated, confusing, and limited. They may discover their preferred dentists aren’t in-network; they often lack clarity about what’s covered – and what’s not – and their coverage is too expensive.

In a joint survey by UnitedHealthcare and STAT Brand Studio, commissioned by Zogby Analytics, 800+ adults aged 65 and older revealed:

  • How they rank their dental health and common oral health concerns
  • The most important aspects of a satisfactory dental plan
  • Common challenges they encounter with their dental insurance

The report also explores how new Medicare Advantage dental benefit solutions are prioritizing value, clarity, and cost savings, and are finally giving older adults what they need and deserve out of their plan coverage.
