Given the difficult economic climate, the cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of concern. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular 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.
Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are some of the plans that we accept:
Vision Plans We Accept
- Coventry Health Care
- Davis Vision
- Eyemed Vision Care
- Highmark Blueshield
- National Vision Administration (NVA)
- United Health Care
