Does Insurance Cover LASIK?

How We Make LASIK Affordable for Every Patient

Many individuals who are interested in LASIK are unsure of whether their insurance company will cover their laser eye surgery. So, let’s tackle this question: Does insurance cover LASIK?

As you may have guessed, the answer to this question depends completely on your insurance provider—that’s what makes it hard for us to provide a general response.

LASIK is an elective procedure, meaning it is not considered an essential surgery. That means most patients are unlikely to get the full cost of the procedure covered by insurance. This can be challenging for many patients who wonder how they will pay for their surgery without insurance coverage.

If you have a similar worry, take note: LVC is committed to making LASIK affordable for every single person. We offer regular promotions—like paying only $52 per month for 24 months when you use your Flex Spending Account—and offer our patients a variety of affordable laser eye surgery payment plans through CareCredit, our affiliate financing partner. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that can be used to pay for out-of-pocket expenses—like the cost of your LASIK surgery—that are not covered by your medical insurance.

Beyond offering financing options, LVC also works hard to make this investment worth it for you in the long term. We strive to provide the most comprehensive eye care and precise vision correction results, from your first visit to our center and every visit beyond. 

  • We provide a complimentary LASIK consultation to give you an opportunity to have your questions answered and learn more about LASIK and LVC without any obligation.
  • We utilize the most advanced laser technology available worldwide and continue to hone our methods to deliver the best possible vision results from LASIK.
  • We give our patients an opportunity to join our LASIK for Life program: As long as you qualify by keeping up with regular eye exams, you are eligible for free LASIK enhancements, if needed, at any point in the future.


If you have questions about whether your insurance will provide any coverage for your LASIK surgery, we suggest reaching out to your insurance agent directly. Our team is available to answer any questions you may have about our financing options and promotions.
