I'm tired of hearing that they won't cover Lasik eye surgery my vision is 20/100 and now when I lose my glasses I have to wait a long time before they replace it and they replace it only every 2 years.
Why won't Medi-cal and Medicare cover lasik eye surgery?
In my observation, I have noticed that the government is at least ten years behind medical "trends", for lack of a better word. I don't expect those two agencies to cover such a breakthrough any time soon.
When it costs the same as glasses. Maybe if you go to the "Lets Suck Off Of The Taxpayers Store" you will find Lasik surgery on the same shelf as glasses but I highly doubt it. Why aren't grateful that the the taxpayers pay for your glasses? It is hardly our fault that your are not responsible enough to not lose your glasses.
never. medicaid and medicare are paid for by me and other tax payers. medicaid is free. medicare will not pay their doctors enough as it is (because of corrupt doctors)its cosmetic surgery. like lipo. they will never cover lipo either. you could become a firefighter. i hear they have really great insurance.
Because lasik is as needed a surgery as.. well, nothing. If you have vision corrected by a cheaper and safer (who wants to pay for the million things that can go wrong with lasik) pair of glasses, why on earth should other tax payers be expected to dole out for you to look pretty?
