Health insurance, meanwhile, helps cover medical care for things like eye injuries, eye diseases, and occasionally, well visits for elderly at-risk patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Get Health & Vision Insurance?
  • You can buy a vision plan as an individual.
  • Vision plans may be offered through work, school, or social plans like Medicare or Medicaid.
  • Vision plans may also be included in indemnity health insurance, HMOs, or PPOs.
How Do I Get Health Insurance?
  • You can purchase indemnity plans, which allow you to visit nearly any doctor or hospital you prefer, and the insurance company will pay a set amount of the total cost.
  • Joining a health maintenance organization (HMO) requires you to use only HMO providers, but can offer even further discounted rates.
  • Joining a preferred provider organization (PPO) does not require you to use only in-network providers, but they will be much less expensive.
What Types of Vision Insurance Plans Are Available?
  • Discount plans offer fixed rates, after an annual or membership fee and deductible are met.
  • Vision benefits packages require an annual or membership fee, a yearly deductible, and a co-pay for each service, but will cover the rest of the expense after the co-pay.
What Do Vision & Health Insurance Cover?

These plans vary significantly in their coverage, but you can usually expect vision plans to help with:

  • Annual eye exams
  • Eyeglasses frames & lenses
  • Contact lenses

Health insurance is used to cover medical conditions. However, “elective” eye surgeries like LASIK or PRK that you choose to undergo may be discounted by either vision or health insurance.

How Do I Pay for Vision & Health Insurance?
  • Employer group vision insurance can be paid through payroll deductions or Flexible Spending Accounts. FSAs allow you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for certain health expenses, including vision insurance, without ever paying taxes on that money.
  • In most other cases, you will be billed monthly or annually for your insurance.
