Medical Insurance vs. Vision Plans
There is a lot of confusion among patients regarding their medical and vision benefits. Many people believe if they don't have vision insurance they will have to pay out of pocket to visit an eye doctor. This is not true.
A vision plan is typically an optional coverage attached to a medical insurance plan. It generally allows a patient one routine (wellness) eye exam per year, as well as a discount on materials such as glasses and contact lenses.
Regardless of vision plan coverage, all medical insurance plans cover any medical–related eye care such as dry eye, ocular allergy, cataract, and diabetic eye exams. Further, many medical insurances offer one routine (wellness) eye exam per year.
