Vision Plans and Medical Insurance

Insurance in eye care is unique because optometric physicians are providers for both vision plans and medical insurances.

Sometimes we don’t know which insurance will be billed until you are in the office. Your chief complaint, or reason for the visit, dictates which insurance applies. Medical insurance is often used for specialized testing as well. See the list below for a list of insurance companies with which we participate.

In addition to Vision Plans and Medical Insurance, we also accept:

  • Cash
  • Checks
  • Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express
  • Health Savings Accounts
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • CareCredit®.

  • “I just want a checkup”

We carry the following Vision Plans. Please call to verify the most up-to-date list.
