Vision Insurance is often purchased alongside your health insurance coverage. These plans will generally cover glasses and/or contacts, your annual eye exams, and any necessary treatments. Some Vision Plans will also include coverage for Laser Eye Surgery, though this depends on your carrier and plan of choice.
While some of these plans require you to pay the physician up front and then submit a claim for reimbursement, others pay the eye care specialist directly. It is important to understand how your Vision Coverage works in conjunction with your health care plan.
