#1 | The Alberta Health Care billing cycle for eye exams is July 1st to June 30th

Eye Care Tip of the Week | #1

The Alberta Health Care billing cycle for eye exams is July 1st to June 30th.

Why does that matter? Alberta Health Care covers children 0-18 and seniors 65 and over for one routine eye exam with an optometrist every year. The billing cycle for these eye exams begins every July 1st again. 

So even if you're kids had their eyes examined back in November 2016, or in January 2017 they're once again covered. 

You can learn more about booking these types of appointments by visiting our eye exams for children page, or eye exams for seniors page. 

Please use your Alberta Health Care card for prevention, not just urgent treatment. Either way, we're happy to see you. 

Not covered by Alberta Health Care for your next eye exam? Check out our insurance page to see which companies we can direct bill.
