Eye glasses frames cost covered in Insurance

Hello,

My health insurance policy states that it covers the optical aids like glasses or contact lenses but i want to understand if glasses frames cost would also be covered or not.

Re: Eye glasses frames cost covered in Insurance

I'm with SWICA and they provide me an amount every three years, which covers everything related to getting new glasses. (Test, frames, lenses)


I would say, though, that this amount never covers the complete cost, but I do tend to go for very expensive frames and lenses.

Re: Eye glasses frames cost covered in Insurance

The basic insurance, LAMAL, doesn't provide any cover for glasses. Most people have either a top-up or supplemental insurance which will pay a fixed amount every 2 or 3 years towards the cost of glasses.

Normally frames are not covered. But it depends on the grading of the contract.
