    Different Types Of Vision Insurance Coverage

    There are several ways Albertans can receive coverage for eye care:

    1. Alberta Health Care

    All Alberta residents receive basic coverage through Alberta Health Care. Depending on your age, this includes complete eye exams, urgent eye care, and medically necessary services.

    View the full details on the Alberta health care website.

    You can also find more information on the Alberta Association of Optometrists website.

    2. Employer Insurance Coverage

    Many employers offer supplemental vision benefits through group plans or health spending accounts. These typically cover routine eye exams and may include discounts on eyewear.

    Check with your human resources department to learn about your coverage. You may be surprised that you have health care benefits that go beyond government healthcare!

    3. Private Medical Insurance Company

    If you don’t have group benefits through work, consider getting a private plan. Companies like Blue Cross, Sun Life, or Canada Life offer vision coverage with premiums based on your age and medical history. We accept all of these providers.

    Private health insurance will save you money and keep you healthy!

    4. Student Insurance Coverage

    If you’re a student, take advantage of health plans offered through your school, student associations, or other groups. These usually include basic eye exam coverage.

    People Also Ask Us

    The College of Optometrists of Alberta recommends getting an eye exam at least every 2 years. However, more frequent eye exams are needed if you have an urgent eye issue or a chronic health condition like diabetes or high blood pressure. It's also wise to get your eyes checked whenever experiencing vision changes.
    With coverage from Alberta Health Care or private insurance, eye exams are often free. Contact your insurance to check your benefits. We offer direct billing and accept most insurances.
    Yes! Our clinic accepts payment through health spending accounts (HSA), flexible spending accounts (FSA), and wellness spending accounts (WSA). We will provide the required receipt for you to submit your expenses to your accounts. We cannot direct bill to these accounts.
