Do you know what's covered and what's not?
With over 60 million Americans enrolled in Medicare and an estimated 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day, chances are you have clients that are either already enrolled or recently signed up for Medicare plans. But do they know what's covered? Unfortunately, what many people don't realize until they're caught in the eye doctor's office and find out their coverage isn't what it used to be, is many Medicare plans don't cover routine eye exams, and materials like frames, lenses and contacts.
For those that meet certain qualifications for diabetes, glaucoma or macular degeneration, certain diagnostic tests, eye exams and treatment may be covered. However, according to Medicare.gov,
- Medicare doesn't usually cover eye exams for eyeglasses or contact lenses.
- with Original Medicare members pay 100% for most glasses and contact lenses and
- Medigap policies generally don't cover vision care or glass
Getting Back the Kind of Coverage They Had Before

- an annual comprehensive eye exam
- access to the largest network of independent doctors
- generous fram allowance
- savings on prescription lens enhancements, like progressives.
