Vision or Vision Coverage

Vision coverage is a health benefit that at least partially covers vision care such as eye exams and glasses. All Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) sold on Washington Healthplanfinder include pediatric vision coverage. QHPs do not have to include adult vision coverage.

If adult vision coverage is important to you, check the details of any plan you’re considering to see if it is included.

If your Qualified Health Plan does not include adult vision coverage, you can buy a “stand-alone” vision plan. Stand-alone vision plans aren’t offered through Washington Healthplanfinder and tax credits cannot be applied to them.

Learn about available stand-alone vision plans by contacting the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner or a local agent or broker.
