Does Medicare cover vision? (Cont.)

There are other opportunities, known as Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs), to make changes to your Medicare coverage to secure a Medicare Advantage plan that includes comprehensive vision care:

  • You move – if your new location is outside of your current plan’s service area, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) may offer you an SEP so that you can enroll in new coverage.
  • Your plan is terminated – CMS may offer you an SEP if your insurance provider terminates your plan or CMS decides to no longer support the plan you’re on.
  • You’re dually eligible – if you become dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid, you may receive an SEP so that you can enroll in an exclusive type of Medicare Advantage plan known as a Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan.
  • And more – talk to one of our licensed Medicare agents to learn more about SEPs, Medicare’s options for vision coverage and anything else related to Medicare coverage.
Additional Help Paying for Glasses and Vision Care

It’s likely there’s a Medicare Advantage plan available in your area that offers all of the coverage you need – including vision care. But if you need assistance paying for coverage, here are some options that could help you more comfortably afford the care that you need:

Medicaid – your state’s Medicaid program could help you pay for a Medicare Advantage plan. Many people are unaware that they’re dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. Keep in mind that Medicaid programs vary by state.

Medical credit accounts – if you can’t afford glasses or contacts, a medical credit account could help you fit them into your monthly budget.

Health savings accounts – if you’re still working, a health savings account could enable you to put some of your untaxed income towards your healthcare needs – helping your dollars go further.

Veterans' programs – if you served in the U.S. military, you may be able to take advantage of veterans’ discounts on prescription eyewear.

Non-profit organizations – be sure to check with local non-profits to find out if you qualify for any programs that could help you get glasses, contacts and vision care services.
