Optical Health Insurance

What is Optical Health Insurance?

Optical insurance, also known as vision insurance, is incredibly important when it comes to taking care of your eye health. Not only does it ensure that you get access to preventative care to offset potential health problems, but it also means that you're covered in the event of costly emergency optical expenses.

With the right medical insurance policy, you can keep your eyes in tip-top shape without the costs associated with visiting a private optometrist. With our team of optical insurance experts, we're here to help connect you with a policy that meets all of your requirements. All you have to do is tell us what you need, and we can make it happen.

Common Eye Conditions That Are Covered

With the right optical health insurance, you can expect the following conditions to be covered:

Cataracts.
Glaucoma
Dry eye syndrome
Diabetic retinopathy
Near and farsightedness
Astigmatism
Macular degeneration

It's important to remember that this cover is based on your medical history. If you have already been diagnosed with pre-existing conditions, you may not be eligible for coverage for them.

What Optical Health Benefits Are Covered?

For the best optical care, you need medical insurance that protects your eyes from start to finish. You'll want to look for optical cover that offers core benefits such as:

Routine eye tests.

Prescribed glasses or contact lenses.

Emergency eye care for sudden vision problems.

Eye treatments for common conditions like dry eye syndrome, allergies, and eye infections.

Access to specialised care from optometrists and ophthalmologists.

The top plans may cover laser eye surgeries or other corrective surgeries such as cataract removal.

Preventative care such as screenings for early signs of serious eye conditions.

Since not every health insurance policy is created equal, you always want to check your policy carefully to ensure it meets your needs. This is particularly true if you are taking out optical insurance as an add-on to your current health insurance policy. If you're unsure, it's time to call on the expertise of our advisors.

What's Not Covered?

Finding the right health insurance isn't only about comparing the benefits of each plan. You also need to take any exclusions into account. These limitations may include:

Pre-existing conditions and their management may not be covered.

Most plans don't usually cover optical costs for non-essential services.

Non-prescription glasses aren't typically covered.

Choosing providers that aren't within your insurance network may mean you have to pay out-of-pocket.

There is usually a waiting period before you can claim.

You may be limited to the number of treatments you receive; for example, only having one eye test per year.
