Insurance and Billing

Insurance & Financing Makes Caring for Your Eyes Easier

Do you have insurance? We are providers for most vision and medical plans and in most cases our staff can do the paperwork for you! Please bring in both your vision and medical plan ID cards or the member insured’s information so we may file your claim for you. Information we may need to process your claim should include both the patient’s and insured’s name and date of birth as well as any member ID, group, and social security numbers.

Just a few of the many plans we take are listed below. Please note this list is not all inclusive and that we may have forgotten to list your plan below. Please give us a call and have one of our staff members assist you with your plan.
