Comprehensive well-vision checks are an important part of staying healthy at every age.
Some patients have vision insurance to help with the expense of the eye exam, glasses, and contact lenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as your medical insurance policy. Your medical insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or eye diseases like glaucoma and diabetes. 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 well-vision 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:
Medical Plans we accept – Not all-inclusive
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare Advantage (formerly Medisun)
- United HealthCare.
- United Healthcare Medicare Advantage (formerly Secure Horizons)
We may not participate in every plan for every insurance company listed. Please call our office 623.933.2013 and ask us to help you determine if we are providers on your plan. You will need to have your insurance card available as many times we can check contract status online at the time of our conversation.
Vision Plans we accept – Not all-inclusive
- Vision Care Direct
- Vision Service Plan
We do accept other plans as well, so if you do not see your plan listed, please give us a call and we would be happy to determine if your benefits are available for use at Northwest Valley Eye Care. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits. 623.933.2013
Many insurance plans have “out of network” benefits as well. We will be happy to help you submit for reimbursement should you choose Northwest Valley Eye Care for your eyecare needs.
If you are interested in purchasing a vision insurance plan, VSP and Vision Care Direct offer individual plans. We have information available for your perusal.
