Medicare Certified Provider
Dr. Korwin is one of the few Medicare Certified Providers in New Jersey.
Though Medicare generally does not cover routine dental items and services. (See Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services "Medicare Dental Coverage"), a narrow exception permits coverage of certain dental services that are necessary to the provision of certain Medicare covered medical services.
Medicare may also cover certain medical procedures that dentists are licensed to perform.
In addition, certain dental items and services, such as dental sleep apnea devices, may be covered in certain geographic areas through local coverage determinations, provided specific requirements are met.
Medicare Advantage Plans provide Medicare-covered benefits to members, and sometimes offer extra benefits that original Medicare doesn't cover, such as dental services.
