What’s Covered With Your Eye Care Insurance?

It’s important to note that the coverage and benefits of eye care insurance can vary widely depending on the specific plan you have, as well as any exclusions or limitations that may apply. To determine the exact coverage included with your eye care insurance, it’s best to review your insurance policy or contact your insurance provider directly. Here’s what is typically covered with eye care insurance:

Routine Eye Exam

Most eye care insurance plans cover routine eye exams, which can help detect vision problems, eye diseases, and other issues that may require treatment. Routine eye exams at intervals recommended by your optician are important for your overall health.

What You Can Expect With the Insurance Process

Direct billing can make the insurance process simpler and more convenient. When you make an appointment with Eyewear Experts, we typically go through the following process:

  • Verification of insurance coverage – We can verify most insurance coverages before providing any services to ensure you are covered under your insurance plan.
  • Billing the insurance company – After you receive the eyecare services or choose eyewear, we will submit a claim to your insurance company for payment.
  • Explanation of benefits (EOB) – Once your insurance company processes the claim, they will send you an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statement that details how much was charged, how much was paid by the insurance company, and how much you may owe (if any).
  • Payment – If your insurance plan covers the full cost of the services, you won’t have to pay anything. However, if there is a co-pay, deductible, or coinsurance, you will be responsible for paying that amount out of pocket.

We Direct Bill For Glasses

Without direct insurance billing, you would have to pay for your eyewear up front and then submit the paperwork to your insurance. There is typically a waiting period before you are reimbursed for the amount that your insurance covers.

Direct insurance billing makes it easier, more convenient, and more affordable to access the eyewear you need. It helps remove financial barriers that might otherwise prevent patients from seeking care.

Direct billing eliminates the need for you to pay out of pocket for your eyewear and then file a claim with your insurance company for reimbursement. Instead, we will submit the claim directly to the insurance company on your behalf, saving you time and hassle.

Cost Savings

Direct billing can help you save money on your eyewear expenses by ensuring that you only pay for the portion of the service that is not covered by your insurance. This can help you avoid unexpected out-of-pocket expenses.

Faster Processing

Direct billing can speed up the processing of insurance claims, allowing for faster reimbursement of covered expenses. This can be especially helpful for individuals who require frequent or ongoing eyewear services.
