At Vision Performance Optometric Center, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of medical as well as vision insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of their appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
The knowledgeable staff at Vision Performance Optometric Center is experienced in working with insurance providers. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits.
Many current vision plans are designed to cover most of the basic vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Medical eye treatment including initial vision therapy testing and neuro-optometric rehabilitation testing is not covered by your vision coverage but may be covered by your medical insurance. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are not covered by the insured patient. Some plans (HMO) require prior authorization.
We participate with Medicare, Medicaid,major medical PPO Health Plans (Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, HealthNet, United Healthcare, etc), select HMO plans (St. Jude, St. Joseph Hoag Health, Mission, Monarch, Prospect, Regal, Arta, ADOC) and Vision Plans (VSP, EyeMed, Spectera , M.E.S. or Medical Eye Services, OptiCare) as well as most other plans. Check with our staff if you have other types of coverage. Kaiser Permanente insurance is currently restricted only for hospital in-patient evaluations on a case by case basis.
We pride ourselves with a standard of care that is highly regarded in the optometric and medical industry while providing access to care with the participation of several medical plans. Please be assured that if your plan happens to be the one with which we do not currently participate, we will submit claims on your behalf or provide documentation to help you utilize benefits on an out-of-network basis.
Flexible Spending Accounts
Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred to as cafeteria plans and are elective, supplemental insurance savings plans. These plans are designed to let you save money in an account, pre-tax, to pay for additional medical expenses such as eye exams, glasses, contacts, and often vision therapy or even laser vision surgery. Check with the benefits administrator at your work to see if you are eligible for this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
Other Payment Options/CareCredit
Our Yorba Linda optometry staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating vision care providers. We do not want cost to be an obstacle to maintaining proper eye health and good vision. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Vision Performance Optometric Center, we also accept cash, check, CareCredit and major credit cards. Call 714-996-6210 today to schedule your eye exam today.
