Use your vision care maximum for laser eye surgery

June 5, 2017

Did you know you can chose to use your vision care maximum towards laser eye surgery?

Laser eye surgery is allowed once per lifetime per person to a maximum of twice your vision care maximum.

To receive reimbursement for laser eye surgery, you must have all or some of your current-year vision amount available.

When you elect to have laser eye surgery reimbursed, you are exchanging four consecutive years of vision coverage and using it towards the laser eye surgery instead of purchasing prescription eyewear.

If you do not have any funds remaining under your vision care maximum, then you will not be eligible for reimbursement of laser eye surgery.

The following schedule illustrates the pro-rated maximum amount for laser eye surgery, based on the reimbursement percentage that applies to you:

If your reimbursement percentage is: Your maximum amount is:
100% $600
70% $420
60% $360
50% $300
