Video: “Vision Health” (English) — :15 seconds

Peace of mind is knowing your child has access to quality vision care. About 1 in 10 preschoolers and 25% of kids in grades K-6 have vision deficiencies. When vision problems go undetected in children, it can lead to impaired development or a misdiagnosed learning disability. Regular comprehensive eye exams are an important part of routine preventive care. Kids and teens up to age 19 are covered for vision care, including routine eye exams, eyeglass frames, and lenses under Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Families without health insurance may be eligible for free or low-cost coverage available through Medicaid or CHIP and they can enroll at any time of the year. Parents may be eligible for Medicaid, too. Visit the “Find Coverage for Your Family” map on InsureKidsNow.gov or call 1-877-KIDS-NOW (1-877-543-7669) to learn more.
