Vision Care is designed to provide coverage of expenses incurred for vision care only. In order for an expense to be covered, it must be:
Non-Emergency Goods and Services Outside Canada
Eligible Vision Care supplies and services are covered if obtained outside Canada. Service providers must have proper qualifications for services rendered to be eligible for payment. Covered members are encouraged to ensure providers are licensed, etc.
Payments are made in accordance to plan maximums/limitations in place at the time services were rendered/supplies purchased.
All ASEBP Vision Care plans have maximums which provide a designated amount of money in a rolling two-year period (measured from the current date) for each covered person. Coverage under the Vision Care plan is not based on a calendar year basis.
For example, if you purchased a pair of eyeglasses on April 1, 2010, for $400, a portion of that expense would be paid through your Vision Care coverage, and you would not be able to claim again until April 1, 2012 (two years from the date of the purchase date).
Vision Care benefit coverage is available for you and your dependants. For a definition of a dependant and information about enrolling a dependant, visit the Coverage for Your Dependants section.
Accidental Vision Claims
If the vision claim is the result of an accident, you may be eligible for reimbursement under your Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage.
Accidental Loss, Dismemberment, or Permanent Disability
