My husband, who lives in a nursing home, wears dentures. In January he went to the dentist to be evaluated for dentures,after taking x-rays, they said the best they could do was to repair his dentures. I paid for this out of pocket . Two weeks ago, in May, a "new" dentist came into the nursing home. The patients were all lined up for dental x-rays, the social worker was insisting my husband have the xrays done regardless of his January x-rays and the fact he has no teeth. We were told the x-rays would not cost anything---and they want a baseline. I have a feeling these x-rays were were billed to medicare or medical.
