We are dedicated to improving your vision, so you have the clearest sight possible. We accept many types of vision insurance, checks, cash and most credit cards. We educate our patients about treatment costs before you undergo any procedures. Please let us know if you require a breakdown of your treatment costs.
Our knowledgeable, friendly staff is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your exams and vision correction procedure. 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 many of the basic vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.
Contact our office at (650) 697-7106 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.
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 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.
