Aetna Vision Insurance
Everyone should have an annual eye exam to maintain good ocular health. It is important to watch for diseases of the eye that worsen over time without treatment, such as glaucoma or cataracts for example. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, it is even more important to have your yearly exam, as well as some kind of eye insurance. There are many different companies that offer this type of insurance including Aetna. You can get Aetna vision insurance through your current health insurance policy through this company. If you already have an Aetna health insurance plan provided by your employer, inquire with Human Resources or your insurance provider to see if vision coverage is already included or available.
Aetna vision insurance should take care of your annual exam and certain glasses and/or contact lenses. Treatment for eye injuries should also be covered under your plan. Certain things like LASIK corrective surgery and colored contact lenses, for example, are most likely going to excluded because they are not necessary for sight or healthy eyes. Even if you do not wear glasses or contacts, annual exams are important not just to catch conditions like those mentioned above but to screen for certain other conditions. For example you may not know that diseases like diabetes can have an effect on the eyesight.
Another thing that Aetna vision insurance may not cover is serious injury to the eyes due to severe trauma, for example from an accident. In this case, the main medical insurance would cover any surgery or reconstructive treatment. If you have questions about coverage areas and exclusions, speak to an Aetna insurance agent who can clear up the details of your policy and/or vision discount plan.
