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 pays 100% for the services MSI covers. The MSI Tariff is set via agreement between the Department of Health and Wellness 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.
