Medical Insurance Basics

Did you know that Visionary Eye Care is a full medical optometry practice? Our services include basic eye exams, glaucoma testing, and general eye health diagnosis for long-term problems such as cataracts and macular degeneration. We are well-respected and connected to surgeons and specialists if our patients require further care. Our doctors are constantly taking classes and are on the cutting-edge of medical treatment.

At every visit, we will ask for your medical insurance card. It is important that we have your current medical insurance on file at all times, even if you come in only once a year for vision purposes. In case of emergency situations, we need to have medical insurance information at the ready, and some medical insurances will pay for procedures that vision insurances will not cover.

A copay is taken at the time of a medical exam. After that, we send a claim to your insurance company on your behalf. The insurance company will process the claim and send an explanation of benefits (or EOB) that will detail what they are paying Visionary Eye Care for each procedure, and what part of the encounter is still patient responsibility. Depending on your individual contract, there might be a deductible or co-insurance cost that will be collected after the claim has been reconciled. You will be sent an invoice with that information.

We are in-network with the following companies:
Cigna PPO, Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, Humana, Aetna, United Health Care, and Medicare.

If you have any questions in regards to your benefits or eligibility with your medical care coverage, please call the 1-800 number on the back of your insurance card.
