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.
Most people have vision insurance and medical insurance. They are very different in terms of the services they cover and it’s important for our patients to understand those differences. Vision coverage (VSP, Spectera, EyeMed, Davis etc) is mainly designed to determine a prescription for glasses and is not equipped to deal with complex medical conditions and/or diagnoses.
When a medical condition is present (such as diabetes, cataracts, dry eye, floaters, etc.) it is necessary to file the visit with your major medical carrier (BCBS, Aetna, UHC, Cigna, etc) and the co-pays for that insurance will apply. Insurance carriers set these rules and our office is required to follow them. Some medical plans also provide a routine eye exam.
Because we provide both medical and routine eyecare, we collect and verify your benefits for both your vision and medical insurances. We accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are a few of the plans we accept:
