Does Insurance or Health Care Pay for My Exam or Contact Lenses?
We are pleased to announce that we bill directly to Blue Cross, Great-West Life, Sunlife, Standard Life, Quick Card, Chamber of Commerce and Green Shield. We will also accommodate reimbursement through many other insurance programs that are not directly billable.
Eye exams are covered for all children under 19 and Alberta seniors over 64. Medical emergencies such as metal foreign bodies, minor surgical procedures, retinal detachments, etc., are all covered by health care. Lastly, many diagnostic tests for patients who have medical ailments such as glaucoma, diabetes, hypertension and multiple sclerosis are also covered under the health care system.
