Members with Blue Cross Blue Shield may have all or part of their LASIK procedure covered, depending on their plan and their employers contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Coverage for laser vision correction can be under a members medical insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield) or through the members vision insurance (Blue Cross Vision, EyeMed, VSP). This will depend on your employers’ specific contract with their insurer.

Under some insurance plans Blue Cross Blue Shield will cover all, or part of a members vision correction treatment. This cover is typically subject to the same co-pays and deductibles as with any other medical service under your Blue Cross Blue Shield plan.

There are three ways to check your benefits under Blue Cross Blue Shield:

  • Ask your employer if you have coverage for Laser Vision Correction either under your medical, or vision insurance.
  • Call BCBS member services and ask if you have coverage for LASIK. You can give them the procedure code of S0800.
  • Bring your BCBS cards or member information to your complimentary consultation and your LASIK coordinator will check your benefit coverage.
