The HealthMarkets Reviews team wants to find out how much you truly know about vision plans. People have all kinds of preconceived notions when it comes to insurance. Sometimes they’re right and sometimes they’re wrong. Check out our short True / False quiz to see how much you really know!

True or False: I can’t sign up for vision insurance because the Open Enrollment Period is over.

False! You can purchase vision (and dental) insurance at any time during the year. Vision plans aren’t subject to any open or special enrollment period.

True or False: My health insurance purchased through the marketplace is required to cover vision for adults.

False! Qualified Health Plans only have to include vision coverage for kids up to the age of 18. Don’t assume that your plan includes vision coverage for adults – it may not!

True or False: If I don’t wear glasses (or already have them), I don’t need a vision plan.

False! Vision care insurance is about more than just glasses or contacts. Your vision plan, of course, can help you cover the cost of glasses or contacts. But it also helps with routine eye exams and vision corrective procedures to keep your eyes healthy and your vision clear.

True or False: Unless I have trouble seeing, I don’t need to bother getting an eye exam.

False! Even without risk factors or symptoms, it is recommended that adults have their eyes examined at least every couple of years!

Tips from the HealthMarkets Reviews team

Recommended exam frequency if you are …

  • 18 – 60: At lease once every two years
  • 61 and up: At least one a year
  • Wearing glasses or contacts: At least once a year, or as recommended

True or False: Vision coverage is expensive.

False! It doesn’t have to be. Since you aren’t required to get coverage, you have the ability to pick and choose what you want. Insurance companies are competing for your business. Plus, it’s typically more expensive to pay completely out-of-pocket!

True or False: Finding someone who wants to help me pick the right vision plan is difficult.

False! HealthMarkets Insurance Agency licensed professionals are available by phone 24/7 with access to numerous plans nationwide from highly-rated insurance companies.

True or False: The HealthMarkets Reviews team taught me something I didn’t know about vision care insurance.

True! (A girl can hope, right?) At the very least, I hope this mini-quiz gave you a bit of time to remember that you should consider your vision needs when thinking about insurance.
