VSP and EyeMed
In California, vision insurance plans are accessible through either VSP or EyeMed as enrollments do no go through Covered California. You can apply for a vision insurance plan with either one. VSP offers two different vision plans per person while EyeMed offers three vision insurance plans, some are per person and some are family insurance plans. Both are great for savings when it comes to eye exams, prescription glasses, frames and contact lenses. Let us know if you’re in the market for vision insurance and we’ll help you get sorted with one of these two options, whichever is better for you.
Vision Care for Children
Vision care for children is guaranteed under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. It is classified as an essential health benefit under the Affordable Care Act. In turn this means that all vision care for children is covered under all Covered California health insurance plans for children. Keep in mind, however, that this is not the case for adults. At Affordable California Health Insurance, we will not only help you cut through the red tape to get a proper vision insurance plan for your children but also help you get set up with an affordable plan that works for you as well.
In the state of California vision insurance plans are available to all adults age 18 and over. All you need is be formally be a resident of California and have a Social Security number. Vision insurance plans typically do not include coverage of eye surgeries, treatments or other types of care for your eyes that go beyond the threshold of what generally constitutes vision related eye care. Check with us on plans for more comprehensive eye insurance if you need better coverage. Vision plans are comprehensive for glasses, contacts and prescriptions from the optometrist but not sufficient for more serious operations.
