Vision Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at the Eye Care Clinic is experienced in working with insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your insurance company to submit claims regarding your vision care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits to the best of our ability. We work with both medical plans and vision plans. Some plans have co-payments and others do not. Some plans cover routine vision care and others do not. We expect that you will bring your current insurance cards to your appointments each time you come in. While this may seem unnecessary, it is necessary to be able to provide you with the best service we can.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred to as cafeteria plans and are elective, supplemental insurance savings plans. These plans are designed to let you save money in an account, pre-tax, to pay for additional medical expenses such as eye exams, glasses, contacts, and often laser vision surgery. Check with the benefits administrator at your work to see if you are eligible for this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
