What vision insurance can I use for my visit?
Many of our patients present to our office with a vision plan to cover their annual eye examination. A vision plan is often separate from a medical insurance plan. Vision plan benefits may be used for routine eye care, including annual well care visits, and routine eyeglass and contact lens checks and fitting. Vision insurance may also cover some of the cost of materials, such as glasses or contact lenses. The frequency of your vision insurance coverage is typically limited to one exam per year.
Medical insurance will cover visits involving a medical eye problem, such as discomfort from dry eyes or eye infections or injuries.
If during your routine eye examination Dr. Chu or Dr. Yin has concerns about a potential medical eye condition now or down the road, he may ask you to return for a medical office visit, for which you may use your medical insurance. Medical conditions can be anything from dry eyes to sight-threatening eye disease. Medical insurance is used when Dr. Chu or Dr. Yin needs to perform more testing, special diagnostic procedures, or a follow-up visit to monitor a condition. Medical insurance covers as many visits and follow-ups as required for the diagnosis and treatment of the medical eye problem, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or diabetic retinopathy.
