No vision insurance? No problem.
Unsure about your insurance benefits?
Today it's relatively common to have a vision benefits plan in addition to your medical insurance. This can lead to confusion about whether you should use your vision benefit or your medical insurance when you visit your eye doctor.
Vision benefit exams are limited, eye-health examinations that include a refraction test, which checks to see whether you need glasses or contact lenses. Certain screening tests may be done for ocular disease, but the primary purpose of a vision benefit examination is to measure your vision.
Your medical insurance should be used if you have any eye problems or disease, or if you have any medical conditions that are known to cause eye problems. A medical eye examination is performed to diagnose and treat diseases of the eye. It is more detailed and complex than a refraction/vision examination.
