Schumer backing plan to add dental, vision and hearing coverage to Medicare
“There is a gaping hole in Medicare that leaves out dental, vision, and hearing coverage. This is a serious problem,” Schumer wrote on Twitter.
“I’m working with @SenSanders to push to include dental, vision, and hearing Medicare coverage in the American Jobs and Families Plans,” he added.
State of play: Expanding Medicare benefits is one of a range of health proposals that could make it into a massive reconciliation package, along with extending enhanced ObamaCare subsidies, and providing Medicaid expansion in states that have so far rejected the expansion.
