What Medicare Doesn't Cover
Medicare doesn't cover everything. If a Medicare beneficiary needs certain services Medicare doesn't cover, they will have to pay for those services themselves unless they have other insurance or they are in a Medicare health plan that covers them.
Even if Medicare covers a service or item, they generally have to pay their deductible, coinsurance, and copayments. Some of the items and services that Medicare doesn't cover include:
Long-term Care in a nursing home
Most dental care
Eye examinations related to prescribing glasses
Hearing aids and exams for fitting them
Routine foot care
