What is the Difference between Vision and Medical Insurance?

by | Dec 20, 2013

The difference between vision and medical insurance can often be confusing. Below is a quick breakdown of the two: 

Vision insurance

  • Is designed to cover routine eye care services, such as periodic eye examinations and refractive services (i.e. how doctors determine your prescription).
  • Often offers benefits on materials such as allowance toward glasses and contact lenses (including contact lens fittings and follow-ups).
    • Benefits may also take the form of covered and non-covered (i.e. out-of-pocket) items.
  • Plans vary greatly and pre-approval is sometimes required.
  • Without exception, coverage is often limited in scope and frequency of benefits.
  • Requires that we collect all out-of-pocket expenses at the time of your services.
