Vision insurance vs Medical insurance

About your vision care plan and your medical insurance:


There are two types of health insurance that will help pay for your eye health services and products. You may have both types and Eye Desire and Roth Eye Care accepts most vision care plans and insurance plans in both categories: (1) vision plans and (2) medical insurances.


Examples of vision plans include: Eyemed, Humana, Superior, Vision Service Plan (VSP)
Examples of medical insurance plans include: Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Health Care, Cigna, Aetna


Vision plans cover only routine wellness exams and may include eyeglasses,sunglasses and contact lenses.
Vision plans do not provide for medical eye health care needs (such as glaucoma testing, macular degeneration, cataracts, red eyes, dry eye, conjunctivitis, emergency visits, further diagnostic testing). For these additional tests or office visits your medical insurance can be billed if applicable. Please keep in mind that if you have not met your deductible for the year yet you will most likely not be covered and have to pay out of pocket. If this is the case we will gladly provide you with a receipt of services or we can send in your expenses to your insurance provider so that it can be applied towards your deductible.
