About Your Insurance
There are two types of health insurance that can help pay for your eye care services and optical products. You may have both types and we accept most insurance plans in both categories:
- Vision plans (such as VSP, NBN and others)
Medical insurance (such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Regence Uniform Medical, Medicare and others).
Vision plans only cover routine vision wellness exams, along with eyeglasses and contact lenses. Vision plans do not cover medical eye care (the diagnosis, management or treatment of eye health problems).
- Medical insurance must be used for medical eye care ( examples include: diabetes, macular degeneration and cataracts.)
- If you have both types of insurance plans, it may be necessary for us to bill some services to one plan and some services to the other. We will follow a procedure called coordination of benefits to do this properly and to minimize your out-of-pocket expense.
- If some fees are not paid by your insurance, we will bill you for them, such as deductibles, co-pays or non-covered services as allowed by the insurance contract.
Please provide you insurance cards to our staff member so we can make a copy, or you can even text us a photo of your insurance card when you make an appointment
. We need to have your medical insurance and vision cards on file to bill your insurance.
