Medi-Cal Restoration of Eyeglasses Benefit for Adults
Take action to help restore the optical benefit in Medi-Cal for adults. In 2009, the Legislature made cuts to Medi-Cal adult optometric benefits in response to the economic downturn. These cuts eliminated Medi-Cal coverage for adult eyeglasses, which had a devastating impact on the livelihood and health of the Medi-Cal population. Restoring the eyeglasses benefit for adults in the Medi-Cal program means they would be more likely to receive an eye exam, which often leads to early diagnosis of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. Early diagnosis means lower treatment cost for these conditions and better patient outcomes.

Take action today by telling your legislators that restoring this benefit enables individuals to see clearly, live more independently, and experience a higher quality of life.
