Insurance Information

A vision insurance policy plan can help with the cost of an eye exam, eye care, eye wear, or other vision related expenses. The coverage you receive from your vision insurance gives you the benefit of being able to receive regular eye exams that allow you to be proactive in looking after your eyesight.

Some individuals are fortunate enough to have “Routine Vision Insurance” through their employer’s medical coverage policy. Some plans pay toward the optometric eye exam only, others will sometimes pay towards the contact fitting fee and some even pay toward materials.

If you are uncertain about your benefit eligibility, you will need to check with your human resource department or call your insurance company directly and inquire about eligibility. Our eye care team can also help you get the most out of your vision insurance. To maximize your eligibility and coverage, we work with most of the major medical insurance policies.

Questions you should ask:

  • Does my insurance plan provide optometric vision benefits and coverage?
  • Can I see the eye doctor of my choice?
  • What does my plan allow?

If your medical policy allows you to see any eye doctor of your choice we will verify your coverage, file the claim electronically and accept assignment of benefits for you. To verify your vision coverage, we will need a phone number for verification of benefits, a group, plan or policy number, the social security number of the insured, member and patient’s date of birth, and name of employer. Verification of insurance benefits must be verified 24 hours prior to your appointment.

When you arrive for your appointment we will need a copy of your insurance plan policy card. You will be expected to pay in full the difference in the amount allowed at time of service. If for any reason the insurance company pays less than quoted you will be responsible for any amount unpaid.
