Q&A with Dr. Neiheiser
Dr. Neiheiser Answers Your Eyecare Questions
I’m confused about my insurance. Do I have benefits for an eye exam?
It’s understandable to be confused. I wish there were a simple answer for everyone, but there’s not.
Let’s start with the easier answer. If you know that you have a plan that is an exclusive vision plan, such as VSP or EyeMed, then that insurance provides your coverage. It’s pretty straightforward, and you can see your benefits online, by phoning the insurance company, or asking us. The more confusing scenario is whether or not your medical insurance (eg., Aetna, Cigna, Horizon, etc.) provides benefits for a routine eye exam. They may or may not. If you do have the benefit, it may be provided directly by the medical carrier, or they may contract that out to a third party, that we may or may not participate with. And, to further confuse the matter, it is possible that our doctors may be “in network” for the medical plan and “out of network” for the vision plan.
It’s frustrating and confusing for us too. Contacting insurance companies is time consuming, and sometimes the answers they give are not clear or complete. Please know that we really do our best to get your insurance information correct. Prior to your visit, ask these three questions of your insurer: 1) Do I have coverage for routine eye exam? 2) Do I have coverage for eyeglasses and/or contact lenses? 3) Is the coverage through a separate vision plan?
We will help you as much as possible, but ultimately you are responsible for knowing your benefits. I hope this explanation clears up some insurance questions and allows you to get the eyecare that you deserve. It is really all about the care … I only wish insurance companies felt the same way!
