Insurance

officephoto6 origMany primary insurance providers contract with an independent third party to provide vision benefits for their members. Sometimes, determining if you have vision benefits can be confusing. For example, many Aetna members have EyeMed, but they may refer to it by another name (i.e. "Aetna")

If you have vision benefits and do not see your insurance listed below, check with your human resources department or primary medical insurance and ask if you have any third-party vision coverage.

We provide routine eye care and are in-network with a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we are in-network with:

If you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.

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.
