How come our mouth and eyes aren’t included with health insurance in America?

Better to bleed you dry
Because that’s not how the insurance companies wish to operate and there’s no law saying they must.
Is that sort of answer were you looking for?
Because of some weird historical quirks, basically.
Who knows. And I have an eye condition that makes dealing with insurance *wildly* confusing. Anytime I call my health insurance about anything related to my eyes they want to say “no, we don’t deal with eyes, call your vision insurance” but they certainly do deal with this. It’s ridiculous.
You gotta pay extra to see and speak
talk to your insurance and ask them
Ears aren’t 100% included, and by that I mean hearing aides.
It’s not included in Canada either
Because insurance is a fucking scam. That’s why.
Teeth are luxury bones.
We are a nation of scams. “Nickel and diming” is just one of the techniques used to scam us.
“Oh sorry, that’s not included in your comprehensive coverage.”
Because your healthcare system is shit, son.
Because dentists and eye doctors don’t have a strong lobby.
Those are expansion packs.
It all goes back to the people who manufacture those plastic insurance cards.
Because america is a piece of shit corporation masquerading as a country that cares.
Capitalism. It always pisses me off a little that there’s people out there who can see for free 😆
Because in America we do not like things to make sense or to be easily accessible
Fuck you that’s why
Mouth? What mouth insurance? Like dental? That’s a thing you know lol
Are you under the impression that they are covered under the same umbrella in other countries?
America is corrupt (slightly)
Feet are extra, too! You don’t need to see, eat, hear, or walk, no one cares about that.
Actually they are, but only for certain things.
They’re privileges. You don’t need em.
If I had to guess (and I’m not saying I agree with it), I’d say that eyes aren’t directly related to physical health. Even if your insurance doesn’t cover eye exams, they typically still cover eye infections or health concerns (glaucoma). Similarly, they may not cover cleanings but may handle part of an oral surgery bill if it impacts more than just the teeth.
My dental and vision coverage is $15/month combined. Who cares lol
