GENERAL INSURANCE INFORMATION

Health insurance and vision insurance are both important to maintain healthy eyes. When you come in for your visit which type of insurance will be used? The answer to this question depends upon the reason you are being seen.

Please take a moment to review the following information. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. A member of our staff will be happy to help you.

Your Health Insurance

Your health insurance will be used if you are coming in for medical care, much the same as when you visit a cardiologist for an evaluation or follow-up for a heart condition. Health insurance would cover medical eye exams and services for the following:

In addition, your health insurance may have benefits that include:

  • Vision insurance (see below
  • A routine eye exam
  • Parts of the routine exam (such as the refraction)

Your Vision Insurance

Your vision insurance (VSP® or Eyemed, for example) is used if you are coming in for a routine eye exam. This visit would be similar to going to your primary care physician for a routine physical exam. Vision insurance would be used in the following situations:

In addition, your vision insurance may have benefits that include:

  • Allowance for prescription eyeglasses and contacts lenses
  • Allowance for contact lens exam fees
  • Optical lens enhancements (such as anti-glare coating)
Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. If your visit is billed under your health insurance, then you may choose to schedule a separate routine exam using your vision insurance. Be aware you may be financially responsible for the exam as determined by your vision insurance.
Fittings and updates to contact lenses require more time and testing during your visit. Most insurance companies therefore treat a contact lens evaluation as a separate service from your routine eye exam. Some insurance plans, however, provide allowances that will cover a portion of this service.
