Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs.
The Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP) covers annual eye exams for ages 0-18 and over 65, as well as urgent eye care and medically required visits.
Seniors with low income may be eligible for additional coverage of up to $230 in a 3-year period, specifically for prescription glasses. Eye surgery and medications are not covered, but special exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis by submitting a claim.
Please check your insurance coverage before scheduling your appointment as it will help streamline the process.

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as medical insurance. Regular medical health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
