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.
Please note that eligibility verification from your insurance is not a guarantee of payment.
Please know your plan. It is the patient’s responsibility to be aware of his/her plan. Co-payments are due and payable at the time of your office visit. Deductibles, co-pays, co-insurances, and/or other balances that are your responsibility will be billed to you once these amounts are determined. If you are a member of an HMO, you are required by your plan to obtain a referral prior to your medical eye examination.
