OHIP covers one major eye exam every year for patients 19 and under and 65 and over. OHIP will also cover annual comprehensive eye exams and follow-up appointments for those between 20 and 64 with a health condition that puts their ocular health at risk. These conditions include:
Your eye exam may also be covered by OHIP if your physician specifically requested it. For these appointments, you will require a referral.
We also direct bill to a number of major insurance providers, including:
Every insurance plan is different, so it’s a good idea to know what your plan covers before booking your appointment. Many plans will cover partial costs of comprehensive eye exams every 2 years, as well as a certain amount for glasses and/or contact lenses.
If you are unsure of your insurance coverage, we will gladly help. We can check your eligibility and coverage limits if your provider allows it.
We know insurance coverage can be confusing, and that cost can be a barrier to accessing essential eye care services. If you have questions about payments, fees, and direct billing, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can call us at (519) 843-2660.
