Vision plans provide coverage for routine exams, glasses, and contact lenses, or at least give you some type of discount on the doctor’s fees. If you have trouble with your vision (nearsighted, farsighted, astigmatism, etc.), your visit may be considered a vision problem and can be billed to your vision plan.
Your medical insurance may cover a medical eye problem, but not pay for the exam if it is a “routine” eye exam. If you have a medical problem (infection, corneal disorders, diabetes, a lazy eye, cataracts, glaucoma suspect, dry eye, double vision, etc.), your visit is considered a medical problem and can be billed to your medical plan.
Our billers will determine the appropriate plan (medical or vision) to file your claim, based on the results of your exam.
