Since I have been on Medicare they have paid for the eye health exam by an opthalmologist (M.D. or O.D.) but not for an exam by an optometrist (D.O.). They also have not paid for the refractory part of the exam which is where you look at an eye chart through different lenses to see which glasses you need.
Same here. Medicare won't pay unless you have glaucoma, or eye disease of some sort. The cutbacks must be at the state (medicaid) level.
