Vision Insurance: Get a Clear View of Coverage
For many Americans, vision insurance is a benefit commonly proved to workers by their employers. Once those workers approach age 65 and begin applying for Medicare coverage, they need to be aware that their vision coverage may not be what they were used to under an employer-provided insurance plan.
With Original Medicare, also known as Medicare Parts A and B, enrollees receive coverage on select vision treatments and tests. While Original Medicare provides an acceptable amount of coverage for many people’s health care needs, it may not be enough. However, there are ways to improve your Original Medicare coverage to obtain the vision coverage you need.
