Does insurance cover the cost of dentures?

Yes, no and maybe.

Some insurance plans cover dentures at the benefit level they allow for major services and prosthetics. There may be a deductible and copay with the amount determined by the insurance contract. Some plans do not cover major services at all. In addition, benefits may be limited, or not available at all, depending on annual maximum and plan limitations, such as frequency of service and if the denture has been lost or broken.

As with many dental services when you have a dental plan, it is often best to predetermine treatment for an estimate of your out-of-pocket costs.
