LASIK and other types of refractive surgery are usually considered "cosmetic procedures" and hence are not covered. However, each company sets its own policies. Call your insurance carrier to ask about the specific features of your policy in regards to LASIK surgery.

If you have a pre-tax flexible spending account for medical expenses administered through your employer, you can usually use money you've set aside in this account for your LASIK surgery. You may also be able to use money from a Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for LASIK. Ask your employer's Human Resources representative or your local banker or financial advisor for details about these options.
