The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
When scheduling your appointment, our office staff will ask you for insurance infomation including subscriber name and date of birth so that we can check your benefits prior to your appointment. If you have any questions about your benefits or eligibility, please call the member services phone number on your insurance card. We are happy to submit a claim on our patients’ behalf to any insurance companies for which we are providers. However, if the claim denies in whole or in part, the patient is responsible for payment of those fees. To dispute a non-covered claim, the patient must contact his or her insurance company directly.
Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:
