Insurance Info

  • Vision Insurance

    The knowledgeable staff at The Eye Institute is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer 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.

    Many current vision plans are designed to cover most of the necessary vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional expenses that are covered by the insured patient.

    Medical Insurance

    If you do not have vision insurance, your medical insurance may provide some coverage for eye exams or eye health exams. We can help you determine whether this is an option. Ask our front desk team about coordinating with your medical insurance provider.

    Contact us to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.
