Medicare, Aging and Eye Health

Medicare may help keep your eyes healthy

The following infographic was created by the National Eye Institute (NEI), part of the National Institutes of Health. It depicts national statistics on aging and eye health, and it includes guidelines for utilizing Medicare for preventative eye health. Many Americans may not be aware of the resources that Medicare offers to help keep your eyes healthy. For example, Medicare helps pay for comprehensive dilated eye exams for certain individuals, as illustrated in the infographic below.

PLEXIS simplifies Medicare administration by enabling payers to streamline electronic workflows, coordinate care, meet cost containment objectives, and more. In response to the needs of vision insurance organizations, PLEXIS adapted our core platform to automatically manage complex vision-specific accumulators and highly-complex fee schedule calculation instructions.
