Coverage can help with costs
Vision insurance vs. medical insurance: What's the difference?
Medical insurance = illness, injury, or chronic health conditions
Some examples include:
- Eye disease
- Annual eye care for those with chronic health conditions such as Diabetes
- 'Red- eyes' and or "Conjunctivitis"
- Vision loss
Vision insurance = routine vision exams and eye wellness checks
It varies by plan, but many cover or reduce the cost of:
- Annual vision exams
Make the most of your insurance
Know before you go
Insurance plans can be cumbersome, but it pays to spend some time learning what's covered on yours. Check with your employer or vision insurance provider if you have questions or need additional details.
If you already have insurance, use it
Whether you’re new to vision correction or you’re already wearing glasses, it’s the perfect way to try contacts at little to no out-of-pocket cost.
Don't leave your insurance card at home
Your eye care professional's office can submit a claim more quickly and easily with your insurance card in hand.
Know your exam schedule requirements
Some vision plans allow you to book exams on a calendar year basis, so you may not have to wait a full 365 days until your next exam.
