The cost of eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, insurance may help to lower these annual expenses.
Basically, there are two types of coverage: medical insurance and vision benefits. Medical health insurance plans protect you against financial losses whenever you have a medical complaint, even if there are multiple complaints per year. These complaints can be such things as headaches, allergies, dry eye, ocular injuries, or even systemic diseases such as diabetes.
A vision plan is not really insurance, as it simply provides one-time discounts at reduced costs for glasses or contact lens exams. Unfortunately, almost all vision plans have not increased their reimbursements in literally decades so for that reason, we are being forced to accept less of them. While we share in your frustration, we are still able to see you under your medical insurance and if you need glasses or contacts we have the ability to file for your out-of-network benefits so that you may be directly reimbursed for your out-of-pocket expenses.
Finally, having insurance at the time of service does not guarantee payment, so we always recommend you check with your carrier prior to your visit and obtain any necessary referrals.
