Reimbursement of your child's eyeglasses by the RAMQ
Since September 1, 2019, the RAMQ has been reimbursing the cost of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses for children under the age of 18.
Under the Québec government’s See Better to Succeed financial assistance program, the RAMQ reimburses a fixed amount of $250 every two years for eyeglasses and contact lenses purchased from a Québec retailer. Eye examinations are covered by Medicare.
To receive the reimbursement, you must fill out an online form within 12 months of the purchase. Some restrictions apply. Visit the RAMQ’s website for more information.
