Dental & Vision insurance are types of insurance coverage that specifically pay for dental and vision care expenses. Dental insurance typically covers expenses related to preventive care, such as regular check-ups and cleanings, as well as more extensive procedures, such as fillings, extractions, and orthodontic work. Vision insurance typically covers expenses related to eye exams, glasses, and contact lenses. Some policies may also cover more extensive procedures such as cataract surgery. Dental and vision insurance can be purchased as stand-alone policies or as part of a larger health insurance plan. Similar to health insurance, the type and amount of coverage provided by dental and vision insurance will vary depending on the policy, and the insured is typically required to pay a monthly premium to maintain coverage. Some policies may also require the insured to pay a co-pay or deductible for certain services.
