Most patients don't know that vision insurance and medical insurance are two different things, and don't always come in a one-size-fits-all package. If you have medical insurance, it doesn't automatically mean that vision insurance is included. Check with your insurance agent to verify what is included on your medical insurance plan. If you don't see your insurance plan listed here, please call us and we can help you see how your vision or medical plan work at Today's Eye Care. We know insurance can be confusing, so we are here to help!
Vision insurance is designed to cover only updates in glasses and contact lens prescriptions, as well as a health wellness screening.
Your medical plan(s) can include treatments and maintenance for many eye conditions and diseases, which can include eye infections, allergies, eye trauma, dryness, and dry eye syndrome. To treat eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and more, we will work with your primary care doctor to support your treatments.
If you are using insurance benefits for your office visit, please be aware that your insurance coverage is an agreement between you and your insurance company. We are not part of that agreement. As a courtesy to you, we will submit claims to your Primary insurance carrier - however, to do so, we must have a current copy of your insurance card at the time of the exam. This will help you to receive the maximum benefits from your plan. If there is more than one insurance company to bill, you will need to file additional claims on your own. Please remember that ultimately, you are responsible to pay for your examinations, treatments, glasses, contact lens purchases, and applicable fittings. If your insurance company has not reimbursed our office in full within 60 days, you will receive a statement and be responsible for payment in full. You may be entitled to reimbursement from your insurance company and therefore should follow up with them. Insurance deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance, and all non-covered services are due at the time of your examination or purchase. The person who seeks care or brings a child into our office is responsible for the payment of all fees. If a divorce is involved, please recognize that we are not part of your divorce decree. If differing amounts or percentages are required from each parent within the decree, our office must have payment in full from all parties before dispensing any contact lenses or glasses.
