Notwithstanding any provision of contract or agreement entered into by a corporation, association, society, firm, partnership or individual doing business as a hospital association or as a health care service contractor, whenever the contract or agreement provides for payment or reimbursement for a service that is within the lawful scope of practice of a licensed optometrist, the hospital association or health care service contractor shall provide payment or reimbursement for the service, whether the service is performed by a physician or a licensed optometrist. Unless the contract or agreement provides otherwise, there shall be no reimbursement for ophthalmic materials, lenses, spectacles, eyeglasses or appurtenances thereto. [1971 c.97 §2; 2005 c.442 §3]
