Default Oral Surgeon

Can anyone recommend an oral surgeon that accepts Medicare? I need a biopsy and Caylor & Rosario don't take Medicare.

I have never thought about that...since dental issues generally are not covered by medicare.

Perhaps you should consult a head and neck surgeon?

I definitely need an oral surgeon. The practice that I was referred to has opted out of Medicare. This practice told me that biopsies are covered under Medicare but they just don't take it.

When I had an extraction at that office, I was told that they are the only local oral surgeon and they were extremely busy.

I wish I could help you.

I will say that the extraction which we paid for was ..I thought reasonable. You might ask how much a biopsy would be out of pocket.
