Eye Prostheses Program

The Eye Prostheses Program provides coverage to residents who need an eye prosthesis and the services of a qualified prosthetist for eye (ocular) prostheses. The program provides coverage to residents of all ages who are eligible for MSI coverage.

 Only the services and products of approved providers are eligible for coverage. The Ocular Prosthetic Program provides financial assistance, MSI does not provide 100% coverage. There are co-pays of varying amounts associated with all the services MSI covers. The MSI Tariff and co-pay are set via agreement between DHW and the provider.


For information on eligibility and coverage provided, please contact the MSI Office at 1-866-553-0585. A referral is typically required for prostheses services, so please discuss these programs with your physician.
