|VISION CARE vs. MEDICAL CARE
Many patients have vision plans and many have medical insurance coverage for their eye care, some have both.
Your eye care problem will determine which insurance carrier will cover your eye examination.
A vision plan will pay for your wellness exam if you are healthy and have healthy eyes. Medical insurance may pay for
your eye care if your examination requires testing and medical decision making because you have systemic health
problems (for example, diabetes), an eye disease (such as glaucoma, cataracts, conjunctivitis) or a medical condition
that requires taking a high-risk medication.
