Answer by Diane A
Dental services are not typically considered medical care, that is why they are always riders (add ons ) to the usual medical policy. Dental insurance can be actually very inexpensive as a stand alone policy. Vision is similar in that medical eye problems (glaucoma, etc) treated by an ophthalmologist are usually billed under medical services; glasses (& optometry visits for this) are usually stand alone. Poor vision is not considered health care historically. Glasses are a relative new invention in the scheme of things and were considered a luxury not a necessity.

Many aspects of the health care bill do not start for 4 or more years anyway. Explore dental & vision plans on your own-some are really cheap. Cost co and other places do vision; dental schools provide cheap dental services if you need that.
