California Legislature To Restore Medi-Cal Eyeglass Benefit To Budget





Friday, June 14, 2019





SACRAMENTO, Calif. –
The California Optometric Association (COA) yesterday applauded California
legislators for restoring the Medi-Cal eyeglass benefit. COA president Ronald
G. Seger OD, FAAO, in response to the 2019 -2020 state budget passed by the
legislature earlier this week and expected to be signed by Newsom, said,
“California’s doctors of optometry applaud Governor Newsom and California’s
legislators for recognizing the opportunity to improve sight and save lives by
restoring eyeglasses and vision aid coverage for adults participating in
Medi-cal.”





The COA statement
continued, “Optometrists championed this crucial budget investment because
eyeglasses not only help our seniors, people with disabilities and people with
low incomes drive safely, read, and work, but also help connect more
Californians with essential eye examinations that can save lives and limbs. Eye
doctors know firsthand that when Californians don’t have eyeglass coverage,
they are more likely to skip necessary comprehensive eye exams, leaving chronic
diseases like diabetes and hypertension undetected. We are proud to have worked
alongside patient advocates to raise this issue to the forefront of budget
discussions with the goal of increasing early detection, connecting patients
with care needed to manage conditions like diabetes and heart disease, and
preventing severe systemic complications ranging from blindness to amputations.





“Doctors of optometry have a clear, 20/20 vision that integrates eye care into a healthcare system focused on prevention to bridge health care gaps for disadvantaged communities. This state budget investment is an important step forward to improve sigh and create healthy lives.”
