More Vision Benefits Information:
At Folkman Eye Clinic, we understand that in the rapidly changing healthcare environment, understanding your vision and medical benefit coverage can be confusing. To simplify the process and facilitate the best possible service, we’d like to provide some explanation of how the insurance process works.
First and foremost, it is important to understand that our doctor and staff do not influence or decide assignment of benefits. The relationship is between the patient and their insurer; patients are financially responsible for any benefits not covered by their insurance company. Again, we are glad to contact your insurer on your behalf to determine your eligibility for benefits before your visit. If certain benefits are not covered by your insurance company, we will be happy to calculate the out of pocket cost to you.
Every comprehensive eye exam we do has two components. The first and most important aspect is a comprehensive ocular medical exam. Many eye diseases have few symptoms until they become sight-threatening. For this reason, it is important to have a comprehensive eye exam every year even if you feel there are no issues with your visions. The other component is a visual screening to determine if any vision correction is necessary. Our doctor will prescribe the necessary eyewear or contact lenses to ensure the very best possible vision for each patient. In some cases, our doctor may need to perform additional tests to diagnose or rule out a suspected eye disease. The cost for these tests, if not covered by vision or medical insurance, is the responsibility of the patient.
Healthcare benefits for vision are designed specifically to protect your vision and eye health. In most cases, vision insurance providers will fully cover the cost of your comprehensive eye health and vision exam. Usually, a co-payment is required at the time of service for your exam. Some vision insurance also provides members an allowance that they can use towards the purchase of contact lenses or frames. If you do have this allowance, you can use it towards contacts or frames, but not both. Additionally, most plans provide a discount on glasses lenses. If you choose lenses, frames, or contacts that are above your allowance, you are responsible for the additional cost.
Health insurance is designed to protect your overall health. Some medical insurance providers will cover the cost of a comprehensive eye exam. Any additional medically necessary tests or treatments that are required may also be covered in part or in full by your medical insurance. Unlike vision insurance, however, most medical insurance plans do not cover the costs of purchasing contact lenses or glasses.
If you have any questions about your medical or vision insurance benefits, we would be happy to answer them.
