Information about Insurance at Washington Eye Doctors
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.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as health 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. PLEASE NOTE: While we are in-network providers for many health plans and Medicare, we are not an in-network providers for Medicaid.
Here are just some of the plans that we accept:
We are network providers for the following insurance panels:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal
- Care First
- United Health Care
Many insurance plans also have out-of-network provisions. Please check with your employer or insurer. We can supply you with the necessary paperwork to submit to your insurance carrier.
We do accept other plans as well, so if you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.
