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.
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:
Medical Plans we Accept
Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Medicare, United HealthCare
Vision Plans we Accept
VSP, EyeMed, Superior Vision
As participating providers, we file claims for you and accept what Medicare considers a fair fee for services rendered.
What’s covered under Part B?
- Medicare covers 80% of what it considers is a fair fee
- You are responsible for your Medicare deductible as well as the remaining 20%
Many patients have supplemental insurance to cover the remaining 20% balance.
What’s covered under Part C?
- Your Medicare Advantage Plan covers what it considers is a fair fee
- You are responsible for any co-pays
We do accept other plans as well, so if you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.
