Certain Humana Medicare Advantage plans may offer vision coverage
Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) offers only minimal coverage for vision care. Routine eye exams, eyeglasses and prescription contact lenses are not typically covered by Original Medicare.
Whereas Original Medicare is provided by the federal government, Medicare Advantage plans are offered by private insurance companies like Humana and are an alternative way for beneficiaries to receive their Original Medicare coverage.
Humana Medicare Advantage plans provide the same coverage as Medicare Part A and Part B, and certain Humana Medicare Advantage plans may include additional benefits such as:
- Coverage for routine vision care
- Dental care coverage
- Prescription drug coverage
- Health and wellness programs
Not all Humana Medicare Advantage plans offer eye care coverage. If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan with vision coverage, your insurance provider will detail what services and materials are included and what each costs.
What vision benefits can Humana Medicare Advantage plans offer?
Humana Medicare Advantage plans that include vision benefits can include coverage for a number of eye care services, such as:
- Routine vision exams
- Discounts on frames and contact lenses
- An extensive network of vision care providers that plan members can choose from
Depending on your Humana Medicare Advantage plan, you may be required to visit a vision care provider from within your plan network in order to get full coverage. Some plans may require you to pay copayments, coinsurance and/or deductibles.
