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 medical insurance. Regular medical 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.

Important information for you about Vision and Medical Insurance

Most people have vision and medical insurance. They are very different in terms of the services they cover and it is important for our patients to understand those differences. Vision coverage (VSP, EyeMed, AlwaysCare, etc.) is mainly to determine the prescription for glasses and is not equipped to deal with complex medical conditions and diagnoses. It does allow for screening of conditions, but once they are present then medical insurance is filed for those services. When a medical condition is present (such as diabetes, cataracts, dry eye, floaters, etc.) the copays for medical insurance will apply. Insurance carriers set up these rules, and our office is required to follow them. In most cases there is no way to know prior to the examination which type of insurance our office will be able to file for you. If you have problems or complaints that MAY be attributed to a medical condition, this requires a more in-depth investigation and addition medical decision-making to rule out any underlying eye disease. We will therefore bill your MEDICAL insurance, NOT your vision plan.

These include, but are not limited to:

New or sudden blurry vision

Flashes and floaters

Dry or itchy eyes

Eyestrain or double vision

Eye pain or redness

Headaches

Loss of vision

There are a variety of systemic conditions that can profoundly and permanently affect a patient’s vision that require a more in-depth investigation and may include additional testing, follow up visits, and reports to your primary care physician. This type of examination is NOT covered under “vision” plans and we will file your MEDICAL insurance, NOT your vision plan.

These include, but are not limited to:

Diabetes

Lupus or autoimmune disease

Hypertension

Thyroid disease

If you have previously been diagnosed by another eye doctor with any eye issues that require medical decision-making, treatment or management, we will bill your MEDICAL insurance, NOT your vision plan.

These include, but are not limited to:

Cataracts

Amblyopia/ lazy eye

Glaucoma/ glaucoma suspect/ previous diagnosis of high eye pressure

Macular or retinal disease

History of eye surgery

We make every effort to be providers for major carriers for your convenience and will file those claims for you. In the event that we do not take your insurance we will provide you with an itemized receipt that you may file with your carrier for reimbursement. If you have any questions, please let us know.
