Medicaid provides medical benefits to the low-income population – people who may not have medical insurance or have an insufficient medical plan. While the US federal government sets the basic guidelines for the Medicaid program, each individual state sets their own requirements and benefits, including the vision coverage.

Who is eligible for Medicaid?

A person does not qualify for Medicaid benefits just because of low income. To be a candidate, you must also meet other requirements set by the state’s Medicaid office.

What vision benefits are provided by Medicaid?

In general, the following vision benefits are available for kids under age 21:

  • Vision screenings at every well-child check-up, with further eye exams and necessary treatment
  • Eyeglasses frames
  • Prescription eyeglasses lenses

Typically, medical plan insurance provides similar services for adults, as well as:

  • Comprehensive eye exams to assess eye disease
  • Glaucoma screening
  • The cost or a portion of the cost of cataract surgery
  • Treatment for eye diseases

The cost of the services is paid directly to your eye doctor, and you may also be asked to pay a copayment at the time the eye care service is given.
