Are My Prescription Glasses Covered? How Students Can Leverage Their Health Plan

Are My Prescription Glasses Covered? How Students Can Leverage Their Health Plan

What was on your list for back to school shopping? You needed a new laptop, a new backpack, a new outfit or two, and of course, a new haircut that was sure to score some double takes. You’re on your way home and… oh yeah; you just remembered you need new glasses. Your bank account is probably suffering right now, but that doesn’t mean your eyes have to.

Style and a Smile

We all love health benefits, and as a student, you can still be covered under your parents plan if they have one through their workplace. If not, then you’re always welcome to join your school’s health plan! Did you know that you’re eligible to claim Swift Eyewear prescription glasses and get your money back? That’s right – you buy your favourite lenses on our website, we provide your receipt, and you file with your insurance company for a reimbursement. Now that’s how you head into class with both style and a smile. All coverage is different, so make sure you check with your administrator or plan brochure to see what you’re eligible to claim.

Stay Informed and Get Shopping!

If you’re covered with your school, you can usually find claim forms in the Student Association/Union office, through the campus website, or sometimes even through a mobile app. An important tip for students is to be aware of deadlines for submission of claims as well as any blackout periods. For example, there could be a delay in processing claims during the first two months of a semester while complete enrolment lists are being compiled. It’s always better to be informed – so make sure you get the facts and then get shopping.

Just imagine what you could achieve this semester with new glasses from Swift Eyewear. Which pair will you choose?
