Unfortunately, Medicare doesn’t cover everything. If you need certain services that Medicare doesn’t cover, you’ll have to pay for them yourself unless you have other insurance that covers these services.
Even if Medicare covers a service or item, you will have to pay your deductibles, coinsurance, and or copayments.
Some of the items and services that Medicare doesn’t cover include:
- Long Term Care
- Routine Eye Exam (vision exam or exam related to prescribing glasses)
- Cosmetic surgery
- Hearing aids and exams for fitting them
- Routine foot care
