Vision Wise Resources

Most vision locations offer fee for service eye exams. Eye exams and glasses are generally not covered under insurance, unless you have signed up for a plan that has vision benefits or the vision problems are due to the development of cataracts and you are 65 or older.

For adults aged 65 years and older, Medicare has simple requirements for cataract surgery: A doctor must deem cataract surgery as medically necessary, and the treating physician has to accept a Medicare plan as payment. Medicare covers both traditional and laser cataract surgeries. These policies also include a traditional intraocular lens implant. However, they would not cover the cost of a newer multifocal lens.

Medicare Part B covers medically necessary procedures, including cataract surgery. It also covers certain postsurgical costs. Usually, Medicare does not cover prescription eyeglasses. The exception is one pair of glasses or contact lenses after cataract surgery.

Here are some tips about vision resources:

Additional assistance to locate hearing resources

If you are low income, contact your local Area Agency on Aging and 2-1-1 and they may know of programs to help with the cost of hearing aids.

Area Agency on Aging (AAA)
An Area Agency on Aging (AAA) is a public nonprofit agency designated by a state to address the needs and concerns of all older persons at the regional and local levels. AAAs are primarily responsible for a geographic area, also known as a planning and service area (PSA), that is either a city, a single county, or a multi-county district. AAAs coordinate and offer services that help older adults remain in their homes, if that is their preference, aided by services such as home-delivered meals, homemaker assistance, and whatever else it may take to make independent living a viable option.
Find your local AAA by visiting their website or calling 1-800-677-1116.
