Health Insurance Coverage for Eye Surgery LASIK

It’s essential to note that some health insurance companies offer selected policies that cover part or all of the cost of LASIK surgery. Before making any decisions, it is important to check with your insurance provider to determine your level of coverage.

NewVision Clinics and BUPA Partnership

This partnership is an excellent opportunity for eligible patients to access LASIK surgery without an out-of-pocket expense.

Medicare and LASIK Surgery

Unfortunately, Medicare considers laser vision correction discretionary surgery, meaning that it does not offer any refunds for LASIK surgery. As a result, patients will need to explore alternative funding sources, such as health insurance or interest-free finance options.
