As an eye doctor in network with SoonerCare Insurance, I have to be familiar with all the rules or guidelines that apply. I will discuss some of those rules in this article. Now understand that SoonerCare can change those rules tomorrow, but here is information about SoonerCare in the current environment.
SoonerCare has a goal to make sure no-one is without their needed vision correction because of financial reasons. Eye examinations with SoonerCare are covered for individuals under the age of 20 and SoonerCare will cover glasses as well for individuals under the age of 20. If you are over the age of 20, then SoonerCare will only cover the examination for medical reasons such as allergies, dry eyes, headaches, diabetes, or other eye conditions.
What Does SoonerCare Cover for Kids
SoonerCare covers a yearly examination and any requested follow ups by your Eye Doctor or Optometrist. SoonerCare will also cover a pair of glasses. This includes both lenses and frames. The lenses are to be polycarbonate material. The frame are expected to last 1 year, but if broken SoonerCare will cover an additional frame. One Vision has a large selection of SoonerCare glasses.
What Does SoonerCare Cover for Adults
When it comes to adults SoonerCare will cover the examination for a medical reason. In other words, SoonerCare will cover the examination if you have eye allergies, dry eyes, glaucoma, diabetes, cataracts, or any other eye disease. It doesn’t help with glasses for anyone over 20 currently.
