Medical insurance covers routine eye health exams!
As part of healthcare reform, many medical insurance plans are now required to cover your routine annual or every-other-year eye health examinations with no co-pay. Please check with your medical insurance provider to see if you now have this coverage.
Eye Care & Eye Wear Center of Maine accepts most medical insurance plans and some vision insurance plans. Our office is currently an out-of-network provider for vision plans like VSP, EyeMed, and Anthem Blue Vision.
20% discount on professional fees when paid at time of service. If you are not using insurance to pay for your services and pay at time of service, a 20% discount will be applied to your bill for these services.
Do I need vision insurance to have an eye exam?
No. Most medical insurance covers routine eye exams every one to two years. Also, it is mandatory that medical insurances cover comprehensive eye exams for all children 18 and under.
Does medical insurance cover treatment of infections, injuries, glaucoma, diabetes, and dry eyes?
Yes. These conditions are covered by your medical insurance. Vision insurance does not cover any medical conditions.
Is there a limit to how often I can come to see the doctor?
No. Your medical insurance does not place limits on how often you receive medical services. Many medical eye conditions like dry eyes and macular degeneration may require follow-up every 3-6 months. Time limitations (yearly or every 2 years) are placed only on comprehensive eye exams, or regular check-ups.
Can I use my medical insurance for my yearly check-ups when I am not yet “due” for an eye exam?
Usually, yes, as long as the visit is billed with a medical, not visual, diagnosis.
