Today’s health care environment has become more confusing and complex. Understanding your health insurance and vision benefit is not as easy as it once was. Our practice is providing this information to untangle and clarify many misconceptions about third party care and your vision.
It is important for all patients to understand a fundamental principle of any third party coverage is decided by the insurance company and whoever is purchasing the coverage (often your employer or you directly). The insurance relationship is between the patient and the insurance company not between the patient and the provider.
Many common vision insurance programs only cover the vision part of the overall eye health examination. There are two distinct and important elements to every visit to our practice. Our comprehensive eye exam will include a vision component to analyze and prescribe eyewear or contact lenses to correct your vision when necessary. The coverage for the vision portion and subsequent eyewear or contact lenses are typically NOT covered in full. The amount covered has been pre-determined by the policy, not necessary base on your individual needs. Second and even more importantly is the eye health examination which is critical to identify and prevent any potential debilitating eye diseases. Although you will be examined for the quality of your eye health during a basic exam; there are times additional testing may be necessary. Many eye diseases that affect your vision have little or no symptoms until the problem has become sight-threatening. Should additional testing be necessary it would be covered under the medical portion of your insurance and be subject to co-pays and deductibles depending on your plan coverage.
