If you are a Medicare beneficiary, it is important to know that Medicare does not cover routine eye exams for eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, some Medicare Advantage Plans may offer additional benefits that Original Medicare does not cover, such as vision, hearing, or dental services. If you are interested in these plans, you should contact the plan provider for more information on their benefits.

Alternatively, consider purchasing a separate vision insurance plan, such as VSP Vision. With VSP Vision, you can enjoy a routine eye exam for just $15.00 co-pay. Moreover, the plan offers benefits for frames with prescription lenses or contacts and extra savings on glasses/sunglasses. What’s more, the plan has no waiting periods for services and a broad range of providers in their network. Call our member services at 310-534-3444 M-F, 8 am-4 pm, if you have questions about the VSP vision insurance we offer.

So, if you need vision care services, you have several options. Whether you prefer a Medicare Advantage Plan or a separate vision insurance plan, it is essential to research and choose a plan that meets your specific needs and budget.
