Does Insurance Cover LASIK?
LASIK is an elective eye surgery procedure. Most insurances do not cover elective procedures of any type. However, from time to time there are certain insurance companies that may cover a portion of some elective procedures such as LASIK Surgery. Each insurance policy is unique and different so there is no way of telling if your insurance covers LASIK unless you contact the insurance carrier directly or go for a LASIK consultation and ask the staff to check and see if you might have any coverage at all. This should be something the staff at the office of any reputable LASIK Surgeon is willing to for you. In the likely event that LASIK is not covered by insurance, the best thing to do is to inquire about other methods of payment such as easy LASIK payment plans or even Flex Plans for LASIK where your employer can withhold pretax dollars to pay for elective treatments such as LASIK and help you pay for your LASIK procedure.
