What Medicare pays for

 

When my husband was in the hospital, he asked the doctor to put a patch behind his ear so that he would not get ill from the anesthesia. Medicare denied this $35 bill, so we had to pay for it.

Now they are thinking of allowing people of all ages to get a sex change with documentation from a doctor or a mental health professional that surgery is recommended, yet Medicare does not cover routine dental care, dentures, cosmetic surgery, hearing aids and glasses?

Please tell me I read this article wrong.
