How is a vision plan different from health insurance?
Some health insurance policies or company benefits packages include a separate vision and/or dental benefit. A vision insurance plan is not the same as health insurance policy. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision plans, on the other hand, are a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost. Generally, services acquired from network providers are cheaper than services from out-of-network providers.
Vision plans generally cover the following, every year or every 2 years, often with a co-pay:
- Comprehensive eye examinations
- Contact lens evaluations
- Eyeglass frames and lenses -OR- contact lenses
Urgent Eye Care
Most vision plans do not cover emergency eye care, such as pink eye, eye infections, corneal scratches, etc. Our doctors are expertly trained to treat these kinds of eye emergencies, and our medical visit fees are similar to an out-of-network medical co-pay. We can usually treat you the same day, and we are happy to help.
