Most of US Seniors Receive Dental Services in Mexico
There are fewer opportunities to get affordable dental services with each day but American seniors found out the way out. Now, most of them head to Mexico for quality services and lower prices. The thing is that seniors do not need to go far off the border and the city of Los Algodones represents great opportunities for people looking for cheap and professional dental care. Not all the people can afford dental insurance and it is estimated that about 70% of seniors are not insured at all. There are two reasons for this situation.
The first one is that dental services are not generally covered by Medicare. Secondly, a lot of employers do not provide the retired with health benefits. As a result, most of them are left alone with their health problems and they are trying to save on all the health examinations and treatments. Besides, according to the Affordable Care Act, you cannot get dental benefits till you get general health insurance. The services in Mexico are satisfying as most of the dentists speak English and to reduce the cost of the services some of the dental offices accept US insurance.
Once you cross the border, there are a lot of banners advertising dental cleanings and canals. Besides, you can easily get such prescriptions drugs as muscle relaxants without any difficulties. The cost of such medications is low and you can save even more if use all the opportunities at once.
Any person can save up to 85% on each of the dental services and seniors find the opportunity as a perfect chance to preserve their teeth and the ability to chew food. The prices in the United States continue to increase at a rate of 6% each year. In general, a lot of dental plans do not provide an extensive range of services but the deductibles are really sky-rocketing.
