Healthy Blue Eye Exams in North Carolina: What You Need to Know!
Are you looking for an eye doctor that accepts Healthy Blue in Charlotte or Asheville, NC?
If so, look no further!
At Northlake Eye, our eye doctors proudly accept Healthy Blue! In fact, we accept a variety of vision AND medical insurances (you can see a full list here).
Does Healthy Blue cover eye exams and glasses for children and adults?
Yes! Children and adults are eligible for an eye exam and glasses under Healthy Blue, a company that administers vision care benefits for managed care organizations such as Medicaid.
Also, if you have a medical eye problem (i.e. pink eye, allergies, dry eye, glaucoma, cataracts, etc.), NC Medicaid and NC Health Choice cover medical eye visits.

Will Healthy Blue replace broken frames?
Healthy Blue does not replace broken frames. Therefore, if you break your glasses before you're eligible for a new eye exam, you'll have to replace them out of pocket. A good rule of thumb for children wearing glasses is, "If they're not on your face, they're in your case!"
Does Healthy Blue cover contact lenses?
Healthy Blue does not cover contact lens materials or evaluation fees. As a result, if you have Healthy Blue and want to wear contact lenses, this would be an out of pocket cost.
Fortunately for you, our office provides contact lens evaluations at a very economical price. Also, we carry only the safest contact lenses available, most of which will not break the bank to wear!

Does Healthy Blue cover LASIK eye surgery?
It probably comes as no surprise that Healthy Blue does not cover LASIK eye surgery. In fact, to my knowledge, there are not any vision or medical insurances out there that cover LASIK. Why? LASIK is considered an "elective or cosmetic surgery", like getting a nose job or liposuction. You can learn more about LASIK and PRK here!
