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:
We are providers for most major insurance plans including Wellmark, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), Medicare, Iowa Medicaid, Coventry, Coast to Coast, Principal, Avesis, EyeMed, Midlands Choice, Spectera, TriCare, and United Health Care. These plans change regularly so be sure to check with your plan first.
If you have an insurance plan other than the ones listed, please call our office to check if we are providers
