Does Medicare Cover Laser Cataract Surgery?

Does Medicare Cover Laser Cataract Surgery?

Medicare will cover cataract surgery if you have cataracts. Medicare does not cover LASIK or any refractive eye surgery to correct vision. Medicare only covers the removal of cataracts, and does not cover any treatment for vision correction.

Insurance companies are not required to pay for eye surgery that corrects a refractive error, such as LASIK or other vision correction surgery. Even if you have LASIK surgery, you will need to pay for your routine eye exams and contact lenses.

If you have an eye disease, eye tests and glasses are covered by Medicare, as are tests for diabetes and glaucoma.

How much does laser cataract surgery cost?

The cost of cataract surgery can vary widely, depending on the type of surgery you have, what type of lens you choose, where you have the surgery done and the doctor you choose. The average price of cataract surgery is approximately $2,500 to $6,000 per eye, although some hospitals charge more. You can pay less if you have a multi-lens IOL, or you can pay more if you have a premium lens.

Multi-lens IOLs are a good choice if you want to have a monovision type of surgery. With a monovision type of surgery, you have one eye corrected for distance vision, and one eye corrected for near vision. If you are only having surgery on one eye, a monovision IOL may be a good option. If you have two eyes done, the two IOLs will need to be different. Most surgeons will not use the same type of lenses in both eyes, if you have two eyes operated on.

The cost of cataract surgery will also depend on your insurance coverage, and whether you have Medicare or private insurance. If you have Medicare and private insurance, Medicare will pay 80 percent of the cost, and your private insurance will pay the other 20 percent. Private insurance may cover more of the cost of cataract surgery, or they may pay for only some of the cost.

If you have Medicare and no private insurance, Medicare will pay 100 percent of the cost of cataract surgery.

How do I get an appointment to have cataract surgery?

If you are having complications from cataracts, you should be able to make an appointment with a cataract surgeon without any problem. This is not true for people who do not have cataracts, and who are considering having cataract surgery. Getting an appointment is not easy, regardless of how desperate you are to have the surgery done.

You can make an appointment if you have cataracts and Medicare. You can make an appointment if you have private insurance. You can make an appointment if you have no insurance. But you cannot make an appointment if you have no cataracts and no insurance.

If you do not have cataracts, but you want to have cataract surgery, your best bet is to either have a relative or friend who has cataracts or who has Medicare, or who can help you get to a doctor for a consultation. You can also call the doctor's office or hospital and ask to speak with the ophthalmology department.

You can make an appointment for cataract surgery if you have Medicare. You can make an appointment if you have private insurance. You can make an appointment if you have no insurance. But you cannot make an appointment if you have no cataracts and no insurance.

If you have no cataracts, and you have no insurance, your best bet is to find a facility that will perform a preliminary exam, such as a hospital emergency room. The hospital emergency room will run some tests to determine if you have cataracts, and if you are a candidate for cataract surgery. If you are a candidate, you will be able to have the surgery.

If you have no cataracts, and no insurance, and your family members have no cataracts or insurance, your best bet is to find a facility that will do a preliminary exam for free, such as a hospital emergency room. You will have to pay for the surgery once your cataracts are diagnosed.

How do I get cataract surgery if I have no insurance and no cataracts?

If you have no insurance, and you do not have cataracts, you can either pay for a consultation with a cataract surgeon, or you can go to a free clinic, such as an eye clinic at a hospital. This is a free clinic, and you will not be charged for the consultation.

The free clinic will have doctors who can examine you, and they will be able to refer you to a surgeon if you are a candidate for cataract surgery. If you are a candidate, you will be able to have the surgery. If you are not a candidate, they will refer you to another doctor, or they may refer you to a local public health department or clinic.

No matter where you go, you will need to be referred to an ophthalmologist who can perform the cataract surgery. If you are a candidate for cataract surgery, you are not allowed to have the surgery done by a non-ophthalmologist.
