The New Year is right around the corner, giving you a chance to start fresh with habits and goals. At the same time, most insurance coverage is based on yearly benefits, which means that you have a clean slate to take care of your health needs. Make sure you are being proactive in maximizing the available benefits next year.

If it’s time for an eye exam, then you don’t need to wait until January to prepare. Review your vision insurance plan right now so you know what will be available in the New Year. Then, reach out to our office to get a January appointment on the calendar, so there is no delay when you have the coverage that is needed for your checkup and glasses.

Benefits from Vision Insurance

Vision insurance is a great way to ensure that you have financial support for all of your eye care needs, including exams, frames, vision correction lenses, contact lenses, and more. Certain vision plans also cover other services, such as PRK or LASIK eye surgeries.

Keep in mind that the coverage varies depending on the specific eye insurance plan that you have for 2020. Don’t assume anything about your coverage until you have reviewed the details. You can always call the insurance company for more information. Most vision insurance plans cover one or more eye exams per year, as well as a specific amount for frames and contact lenses. Often, extra services are not covered by insurance, such as lens coatings or enhancements.

Also, it is important to note that vision insurance is separate from your general health insurance coverage. Just because you have health insurance, doesn’t mean that you have coverage for your eyecare needs. So, make sure you are enrolled for a vision insurance plan in the new year.
