Vision Coverage

Covered California is pleased to offer consumers a pathway to quality vision coverage.

Children’s vision care is an essential health benefit under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, so vision benefits for children are included in all Covered California health insurance plans. Vision care for adults is not considered an essential health benefit and is not offered in Covered California plans. But in an effort to help Californians of all ages access vision coverage, Covered California is contracting with certain vision insurance companies to offer vision coverage directly to consumers.

Before choosing a vision plan through one of the companies below, you should:

  • Review the benefits provided under the plan.
  • Consider your budget, life circumstances and vision care needs.
  • Review the company’s provider directory to make sure that providers are available in your area.

Enrollment in a vision plan is handled directly through the vision companies listed below and not through Covered California.
