Does insurance cover the cost of an artificial eye prosthesis?

Most insurance policies such as PPO’s, HMO’s, EPO’s, and POS cover the cost of an artificial eye prosthesis, including MediCal, Medicare and most private insurance policies. Coverage for a prosthetic eye is not covered under a vision policy. An artificial eye is considered durable medical equipment. Check with your insurance policy that you have Durable Medical Equipment (DME) coverage.
