At Allisonville Eye Care Center, our goal is promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of vision insurance, cash, checks, CareCredit and most credit cards. We inform our Fishers patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
The knowledgeable staff at Allisonville Eye Care Center 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 many of the basic 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 costs that are covered by the insured patient.
Contact our office at (317) 577-0707 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.
Vision insurance does not cover or qualify for coverage of medical visits or testing. Your medical insurance will be billed when appropriate for visits with a medical reason for visit such as red eye appointments, dry eyes, glaucoma, diabetes, and macular degeneration. Your medical visit will be subject to copays and deductibles but patients with a medical diagnosis will qualify for their exam and testing to be billed to their medical insurance.
Cash Pay Patients
Patients who have no insurance medical or vision, will be given a prompt pay discount of 20% off exams, office visits and medical testing. Those who do not pay promptly up front will not qualify for the 20% discount. Discounts on glasses can be given but contact our office with questions.
Flexible Spending Accounts
Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred to as cafeteria plans and are elective, supplemental insurance savings plans. These plans are designed to let you save money in an account, pre-tax, to pay for additional medical expenses such as eye exams, glasses, contacts, and often laser vision surgery. Check with the benefits administrator at your work to see if you are eligible for this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
