Does Insurance Cover LASIK?
One of the questions we answer most frequently is: “Does my insurance pay for LASIK eye surgery?”
Unfortunately, most major health insurance providers such as Blue Cross Blue Shield don’t cover LASIK surgery under their standard plans as LASIK is considered an elective procedure. However, many of the big insurance companies — such as VSP and Blue Cross Blue Shield — negotiate with LASIK providers to offer members a courtesy discount. You might qualify for insurance-based discounts you didn’t know about. You may also have a plan that does cover the procedure, so please talk to us about your insurance coverage.
Can I use HSA for LASIK?
You can use a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for eye surgeries such as LASIK. Better yet, these plans are tax-exempt and can be set up to pay for certain medical expenses – which could mean a 20%-30% savings.
