Health Insurance

Health insurance has become increasingly complicated. We’re here to help. We will bill your visit directly to your insurance provider for all covered services if you supply us with updated proof of insurance prior to each visit. We will need to verify your eligibility prior to your visit; otherwise, services will be billed as out-of-network. Co-pays and fees for non-covered services are payable at the time of service.

In-Network Vision Care Providers Are the Following

  • Heritage
  • Vision Care Direct
  • Vision Service Plan
  • Spectera
  • UHC Vision

* We are not in a network with Davis Vision or EyeMed.

In-Network Medical Providers Are the Following

  • Aetna (Check with us prior to your visit, as we are not providers for all of their plans)
  • BCBS of AZ (possibly BCBS from other states, but MUST be verified with the insurer prior to the visit.)
  • Cigna
  • Medicare

* We are not in a network with United Health Care Medical Plans.
* We are not Medicare Advantage Providers, but we may be able to help you find Vision Co-Insurance associated with your Advantage Plan.

We Would Be Honored to Be Your Eye Care Provider

Call or text our center today for further assistance with your vision or medical needs.

Insurance Claims

We are happy to file in-network claims for you, but the remaining balance is your responsibility. Any amount not covered by your insurance policy is due after your first invoice from our billing department. Please note that some services provided are not covered by some insurance. We will do our best to explain your coverage at the time of service.

No Insurance, No Worries

I don't believe that Big Box Stores and Online Retailers equal better prices or better products. We don't "sell" our patient's glasses or contacts. We educate our patients on what products work best for their optical needs and let you decide. We constantly compare our pricing with other retailers for both glasses and contact lenses to ensure you are getting a fair price for quality products.

Clarification of Eye Insurance Coverage

It is the patient’s responsibility to know their insurance benefits and financial obligations. It can be confusing, especially with eye care. We will assist you with this as much as we can, but we must follow Federal guidelines. We must bill your insurance based on the facts of your case, not based on your coverage. For instance, we cannot bill two insurances for services on the same day or split services between insurances on the same visit.

Medical Insurance

covers services related to eye diseases and ocular symptoms (glaucoma, macular/ retinal problems, eye infections, eye discomfort, watery eyes, injuries, post-op symptoms, etc). These plans include Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), United Health Care (UHC), Aetna, Oscar, Ambetter, Medicare and others. We are not in-network on all plans.

  • Your medical Insurance provides you a card with your member ID. We must have this information prior to your visit. Federal Regulations require you to show this card at each visit.
  • If you have not met your deductible, then you will owe for the services at the time of your visit based on your plans allowable amount. If you have met your deductible, then the plan will pay their portion of the services and you will only be responsible for co-pays (as determined by your insurance contract).

Vision Insurance Includes

Vision Service Plan (VSP), EyeMed, Vision Care Direct (VCD), Heritage, Spectera, UHC Vision, Davis and Superior. We are not in-network on all plans.

  • Vision Insurance plans only cover routine vision care, meaning refractions for eyeglass prescriptions and contact lens evaluations. They also provide discounted coverage for eyeglasses and contact lenses. Your coverage and co-pays may vary from year to year.
  • We must get prior authorizations to utilize your Vision Insurance. We need your Name, date of birth and last four of your SSN (or provided member ID #) in order to get an authorization prior to your visit.
  • This authorization tells us what your specific benefits are and when they renew. We cannot “back date” a visit and bill the plan for services or materials already purchased.
