Vision Benefit

Peoples Health plan members have a vision benefit, which includes medical vision care. Most members are also covered for routine vision services.

What’s the Difference Between Routine Vision Care and Medical Vision Care?

Routine Vision Care

Routine care includes services and tests to check your eyes and keep them healthy. Examples are yearly preventive screenings and eye exams to see if you need eyeglasses or contacts.

Medical Vision Care

Medical care includes Medicare-covered exams and services to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions of the eye. Examples are cataract surgery and treatments for eye injuries.
