What Do You Need to Know About Medicare and Vision Care?


As we age, certain aspects of our health require more attention, and changes in vision are often among the first physical changes that we notice. For many elderly individuals, access to healthcare means taking advantage of Medicare, but figuring out whether Medicare covers vision care can be quite confusing for many newly eligible Medicare recipients.

The short answer is Medicare doesn’t take the traditional approach to vision care that many health insurance plans take — but don’t be discouraged. It takes some effort to understand the differences, but you can still access vision care through the Medicare program if you are armed with the right information.
