In most cases, health insurance does not cover LASIK surgery. There are some circumstances where the insurance covers it, but it does not happen often. In many cases, insurance providers negotiate discounted rates for their clients who are looking to have the procedure.
There are a few ways to get insurance coverage for LASIK surgery. One is if excellent vision is a part of a job requirement, such as special forces in the military. An athlete that plays sports for a living or people with safety requirements that are a part of their jobs may also qualify. Individuals who have medical conditions such as severe allergies or severe dry eyes may also get insurance coverage for LASIK.
