Cataract Surgery Financing

Affordable Cataract Options

Cataract removal is viewed as a medical necessity because it can eventually lead to blindness. This means that the surgery and standard monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) will be covered by Medicare and most health insurance plans. A monofocal IOL will improve distance vision, but you will need glasses or contacts to see mid-range and close up.

Lenses that are referred to as Advanced Technology IOLs are also available for this surgical procedure. If you choose to upgrade from a monofocal IOL to a multifocal, accommodating or Toric IOL, you will pay out-of-pocket for the cost of the Advanced Technology IOLs and the additional testing and follow-up care needed. This is because these lenses are considered a luxury by Medicare and insurance companies and not a medical necessity. However, many patients choose these options because of the lifestyle benefits they provide after surgery.
