The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. 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 just some of the plans that we accept:
Plans we Accept
- Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield*
- EyeMed Vision Care
- General Vision Services
- Vision Resources-Local 21
- Vision Service Plan
* These plans cover medical services for diagnosis and management of eye diseases. They usually do not cover the refraction portion of the eye exam (measuring for eyeglasses) or routine vision visits. Check with our office on these plans to learn of coverage limitations.
We do accept other plans as well, so if you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.
