We’re often asked, “Is eye care covered under my health insurance?” The answer can be complicated, but it boils down to this: it depends on your insurance.
Health insurance is designed to help cover the cost of medical care and associated expenses.
Some health insurance policies cover treatment for medical eye problems and diseases, such cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, dry eye, retinal issues, or corneal injuries.
Choosing an eye care provider that accepts your insurance also impacts your coverage. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor and specialist in diagnosing and treating eye disorders and diseases.
To see if your insurance carrier and plan is accepted, find the ReFocus practice that’s closest to you. Also, if you’re in need of services not covered by insurance, many of our locations offer financing options to help cover the cost of eye care.
Insurance plans can be confusing. Your ReFocus Eye Health care team will happily work with your insurance on your behalf to understand your unique coverage for eye care services.
