Optometry Insurance Coverage Details

Optometry insurance coverage can be complicated and often overwhelming. At Real Eyes Optometry, we want to help you understand how to use your insurance. 

MSP covers one full examination per year for children up to 18 years of age and partially covers individuals over 65 years of age.

Optometry insurance coverage does not provide reimbursement for individuals aged 19 to 64 unless they have a medical issue that falls within the MSP guidelines
(see MSP website for guidelines or talk to your Optometrist).


The following is a list of Optometry insurance coverage providers our office can directly bill:
