Eye examintion

Insurance can be a confusing topic, especially when it comes to the eyes. Sometimes eye exams are covered by vision insurance. Sometimes they are covered by medical insurance, even medicare. The reason for the exam determines which insurance applies.


Routine exams for new glasses or new contacts are covered by vision insurance, not by medical insurance. However, eye exams for people with medical conditions are often covered by medical insurance. These conditions include eye problems such as dry eye, pink eye, cataracts, and others. They also include health problems such as diabetes. In some cases both vision and medical insurance will contribute toward the cost of a visit to the eye doctor.
