Insurance

Insurance may be a financial help for you with eye care, glasses and contact lenses.  We accept both Medical and Vision Insurance at our office.  Eye care insurance can be confusing.  There are two different types of insurance that at times overlap in coverage.

MEDICAL INSURANCE

Your medical insurance used in traditional healthcare can be used for eye care.  Medical insurance provides coverage for eye examinations to determine the health of the eye and care of acute or chronic disease of the eye.  It often does not cover a segment of the eye exam known as Refraction (Refraction is a process your eye doctor uses to measure your refractive error, or vision problem to determine the need for glasses or contacts.)

We accept most medical insurance plans.

VISION INSURANCE

Vision insurance is different than medical insurance.  It rarely pays for acute or chronic health problems.  It is essentially a lay-a-way plan to provide ease of financial burden.  A vision insurance plan collects a small premium which it holds for you it’s customer.  When you utilize your vision benefits at our office they return the amount they have collected and each person has a set limit what the vision insurance provides.  Vision insurance is a use it or lose it scenario.  If you do not use your vision benefits in the year period, you forfeit your investment to the vision insurance company.
