What Vision Services May Be Covered by a Cigna-HealthSpring Medicare Plan?

While Medicare Part A and Part B (also known as Original Medicare) offer only limited vision coverage, some Cigna-HealthSpring Medicare Advantage plans offer coverage for certain vision care services.

Your vision coverage will depend on which Cigna-HealthSpring Medicare plan you have.

Cigna-HealthSpring Medicare Advantage plans that offer vision coverage may cover services such as:

  • Glaucoma screenings
  • Diabetic retinal exams
  • Annual routine eye exam
  • Medicare-covered eyewear
  • Eyeglasses – lenses and frames
  • Contact lenses

Does Original Medicare Cover Vision?

Original Medicare only covers routine eye exams for people with diabetes. Glaucoma tests are covered by Original Medicare, but only for beneficiaries who are deemed to be at a high risk for the disease. Even corrective lenses are only covered by Original Medicare if they are needed as a result of cataract surgery.

A Cigna-HealthSpring Medicare Advantage plan that includes vision coverage could help you save money on some of your out-of-pocket vision care costs.

Some Cigna-HealthSpring Medicare Plans May Offer Additional Benefits

Cigna-HealthSpring Medicare Advantage plans cover the same benefits as Original Medicare under one single plan, and they may also offer some additional benefits, such as:

  • Coverage for dental care
  • Prescription drug coverage
  • Health and wellness programs
