We include one eye examination per insured person per year, and frames and lenses (including contact lenses) every two years.
We include health benefits for chronic medicines to treat chronic conditions on the Liberty Health Cover Chronic Diseases List. Chronic conditions are conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure that require medication and treatment for more than three (3) continuous months.
If you are diagnosed with a chronic condition, together with your doctor or specialist, please complete and submit a Chronic Medicine Application Form to your in-country office. Once you are registered with the Liberty Health Cover Chronic Disease Programme you will have access to:
