We help make the process as easy as possible.
Coverage & Payments
We participate with many health insurance plans. Below is our current in-network list. If your plan is not part of this list, please check with your insurance to find out if we are part of your carrier's network. If we do not participate with your insurance carrier, you can ask your insurance if you have out of network benefits.
All co-payments and deductibles are due at the time of service; any service not covered, or that has been rejected by insurance is the responsibility of the patient. All contact lenses and glasses prescriptions are an out-of-pocket expense and are due at the time of service.
A Note about Medicare Advantage:
Medicare Advantage Plans (also known as Medicare Part C) replace regular Medicare coverage. Copays, deductible payments, and coinsurance may apply.
Unlike Medicare, Advantage plans function like other privately-run insurance companies and have a provider network. We may not be in network for your specific Advantage Plan. Please check with your Advantage Plan Carrier before scheduling to confirm if your appointment will be covered by your insurance.

Verifying Your Insurance
Please bring your insurance card(s) to your appointment. Coverage is verified before each patient, including any applicable copays or referrals. We do our best to work with you and your insurance to cover the fees of all appointments, though if a claim is denied or 'kicked back', our staff can not investigate unpaid insurance claims directly.
WE NO LONGER ACCEPT VSP, EYEMED, TUFTS, OR OTHER VISION INSURANCE BUT CAN SUPPLY RECEIPTS FOR POTENTIAL REIMBURSEMENT.
Flex Spending & Health Spending
Many employers offer Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) or Health Spending Accounts (HSA). These plans are elective, supplemental savings plans towards medical expenses such as eye exams, glasses, contact lenses and other care. These plans are often used along with insurance (and are applied to costs similar to a debit card) to offset these expenses. Check with your employer to see if this is an option you may be able to participate in.
Method of Payment
Payment is collected at the time of service for co-pays, out of pocket payments and glasses and contact lenses or other non-covered items. We accept various forms of payment including cash, check, MasterCard, VISA, Discover, American Express, and Venmo or Apple Pay.
