Complement your vision and hearing coverage with Medico’s partners

Older adults tend to need more routine care for their eyes and ears. But most health insurance plans, including original Medicare, don’t cover exams and services for vision and hearing health care.

Medico® has teamed up with two top-notch providers to fill vision and hearing insurance gaps and reduce your out-of-pocket costs. Medico’s partnerships with VSP® Individual Vision Plans and Start Hearing® can provide full-service, competitive coverage that fits your needs.


Vision coverage

VSP Individual Vision Plans offers high-quality, low-premium, full-service vision plans that are tailor-made for you. They have two plan options — for you, one extra person, or your whole family — that put you in control of when and how you want to use benefits and ensure your unique prescription and materials are covered.1
