Certain UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans may offer coverage for vision services, which can include coverage for routine vision care, glasses or contacts.
The vision coverage available to you will depend on which UnitedHealthcare Medicare plan you choose.
UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plans that offer vision benefits can help cover some of the vision care that Original Medicare doesn’t cover.
Each plan also differs slightly in its cost and coverage. Some UnitedHealthcare Medicare plans may cover routine vision services such as eye exams in full.
Some of the vision benefits that may be offered can include:
Each plan will include its own terms and conditions regarding glasses, contact lenses and other services, as well as the costs associated with approved vision care.
With Original Medicare, an introductory, one-time vision test is included in your “Welcome to Medicare” preventive care visit when you get Medicare Part B coverage. Additional yearly visions tests are not covered. Medicare Part B covers some preventive or diagnostic eye exams.
Because Original Medicare does not provide vision coverage, Medicare beneficiaries may want to consider joining a UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plan that offers vision coverage.
