The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
The difference between Vision Insurance and Medical Insurance.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as medical insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. 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 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:
Insurance Plans we accept
- Aetna (medical coverage only)
- Always Care
- Blue Cross Blue Shield (medical coverage only)- Except for Illinois
- Medicaid- All 5 Bayou Health Plans
