Which Vision Insurance Providers Are Available in Nevada?

Vision insurance providers providing coverage in Nevada include, but are not limited to, Prominence Health Care, Humana Medicare, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, and Health Plan of Nevada.

Prominence provides a $200 annual allowance for eyewear, which includes lenses and frames, as well as for contact lenses. The only caveat is you must use the National Vision Administrators network.

LASIK discount plans are available.

Enrollment with VSP is available throughout the calendar year. You can enroll online or call 1-800-877-7195.

Does Insurance Cover LASIK?

Most vision insurance plans do not cover LASIK, as it is not considered a medically necessary procedure. Most plans do offer LASIK or refractive surgery discount plans where policyholders can get a substantial amount off the total cost of the surgery if they go with a partnered provider.

Medicare or Medicaid Coverage in Nevada

Many physicians accept Medicare and Medicaid insurance. Most plans have vision coverage that includes eye exams, eye care treatment, and glasses or contact lenses. Since LASIK is considered an elective surgery, it is not on the payment schedule for Medicaid or Medicare. 

Here is a quick breakdown of vision insurance options in Nevada:
