Our Toronto Eye Care Staff Is Here To Help You With Your Insurance
The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) covers optometry services for citizens under age 19 and 65 or older. Services include 1 major eye exam per year and some minor exams. For citizens between the ages of 20-64, some services may be covered if your vision is affected by various medical conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, corneal or retinal disease, and others. A complete list of eye diseases covered by OHIP can be found on the program’s website.
If you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.
The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as medical insurance. Regular medical health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
