Medical Insurance vs. Vision Insurance
Optometrists provide two basic types of health services:
Functional vision care
Functional vision care includes routine eye examinations for eyeglasses, contact lenses, and health screening for eye and systemic diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, hypertension, and diabetes.
This type of service is usually covered by a patient’s vision care insurance.
Medical eye care
A patient may need medical eye care for:
This type of service is usually billable and/or covered by a patient’s major medical insurance.
There are also times when specific procedures or tests, such as visual fields, pachymetry and photos determine whether a disease is present or absent. These tests/procedures would also be billable and/or covered by a patient’s major medical insurance.
Both types of insurances may exclude some optometric services like contact lenses and contact lens evaluations. Some cover the exam fee, but not the cost of the materials, i.e. lenses and frames. Both types can have co-payments and/or deductible requirements.
We allow 60 days for an insurance company to respond to the claim.
If we do not get a response from the insurance company within 60 days or if the claim is denied, the balance will be transferred to the patient or responsible party. If we are not a provider for your insurance plan, we can issue you a paid receipt with dates of services, charges and diagnosis codes, which you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.
