Don't have a clue: This is the public HT site where volunteer docs, primarily in the USA answer questions about medical problems. We have no access to or information about health plans around the world where this site is seen. You need to contact that plan directly. You are welcome to use this site when you have a problem we can help you with.

Try insurer website: Years ago, listings were available only in printed form. By the turn of the century, lists had become available online everywhere. Now, some lists are only online, and no longer printed. County medical societies (or other local medical societies), hospitals, insurance companies usually list medical doctors by name, specialty, and location. Tell the optometrist why a vision exam is being requested.
