The cost of eyewear plus an eye exam – whether a routine eye exam or a comprehensive eye exam – can be of real concern. In many cases, medical insurance and vision plans can lower these expenses and ensure that you get the quality care and help you need to keep your eyes healthy for longer. However, there are differences between the two:
Many people in Fair Lawn do not realize eye care is a covered benefit in their medical insurance policy. That means, if you have a health insurance policy, you’ll get coverage towards a comprehensive eye exam, which can check your eye for ocular diseases, eye conditions, high blood pressure, diabetes, and more.
This should be your first priority because good eye health is the cornerstone of good vision.
However, medical or health insurance generally covers urgent care like in the event of an eye injury, so contacting your particular medical provider can help you discover which options are available to best suit your needs.
Vision plans which some people have can help defray the cost of eyewear and contact lenses but are not necessary to receiving top-notch eye care – for that your medical plan will fit the bill!
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:
