Insurance LASIK :Recently, a consumer court in Mumbai laid down a condition that a patient could be eligible for LASIK surgery under mediclaim or insurance.
We are really happy, since this will allow our patients to get some or all of the fees paid for lasik reimbursed from an insurance company.
However, we would caution all our patients against getting too excited about this development.
This is because:
a) The judgement is for a particular set of circumstances, including a long term policy
b) New Policy Renewals often explicitly exclude laser vision correction from the list of procedure eligible.
On our part, we will be glad to help our patients get reimbursement, and will be happy to provide you all relevant details and invoices to aid you in the process.
