FAQs / Will My Insurance Cover Canaloplasty?


The good news with regard to insurance coverage is that canaloplasty is covered by most major insurances including Medicare. Although there are some smaller insurance companies and HMOs that do not currently cover canaloplasty as of early 2012, more are adding canaloplasty as a covered benefit every month. Simply because, it works so well, and it is a safer option compared to other glaucoma surgeries. I’ve also had patients who have paid for canaloplasty without their insurance helping them, simply because the cost of drops was so high for them, that overtime, canaloplasty was an option that actually paid for itself.
