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. Please bring your medical insurance information with you to your visit. Blurry vision can be caused by many things other than the need for new glasses or contacts. If a medical issue is discovered we may need to bill your medical insurance rather than your vision insurance.
Some medical plans will include coverage for an annual or bi-annual eye examination.
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. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:
Medical Plans We Accept
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Harvard Pilgrim Health Care
- United Health Care

Many vision plans will reimburse you if you are seen by an out-of-network provider. We are happy to see you even if we are not participating providers with your plan. Payment is expected at the time of the visit. We will provide you with a detailed receipt to submit to your insurance company for re-imbursement.
