At Eyes on Henry, our goal is to provide you with the best level of eye care and vision attention possible. We are committed to promoting healthy eyes and vision. To do this, we recommend coming in to see your optometrists in Spartanburg at least one time a year and possibly more often if your care deems it necessary. To facilitate the best possible outcome, we offer a number of payment options to meet your needs.
Vision insurance is the most common payment option for patients. When you visit your eye doctor for a vision exam, glasses, or contact lenses, we will ask for your insurance information. We accept most vision insurance plans. Vision insurance may have a co-pay or deductible that you are responsible for paying. Each plan is very different. We highly recommend calling our knowledgeable staff in advance of your visit to ensure we take your specific vision insurance plan.
Most vision insurance plans cover basic vision costs including eye exams and some diagnostic testing. You may also have access to a set spending limit for glasses and contact lenses. We can provide you with specifics about your plan when you call our office.
In some situations, eye care can be paid for under your medical insurance plan. Medical insurance plans will generally cover exams involving checking for diabetic eye disease, cataracts, dry eyes, or eye infections along with some other medical conditions. Each plan differs in the coverage it provides. When you call our offices, we will help you determine if your health insurance can help to cover any of your eye care costs.
Medical insurance does not cover the cost associated with the determination of your eyeglass or contact lens prescription. These tests involve an addition cost.
If you are using a Flexible Spending Account, which is provided by some employers, you may be able to have your vision and eye care costs covered under the funds within this account. These are often called supplemental insurance plans or health savings plans. In all cases, they allow you to open an account and save money, tax-free, to use for medical needs. Eyeglasses, contact lenses, and general eye care tends to fall within this area.
If you have a flexible spending account, let us know when you schedule your appointment. You may be able to use it, along with your vision insurance, to cover costs. We are happy to answer your questions.
We want you to get the care you need whether that is a new contact lens prescription or specific procedures to improve your vision. We offer alternative payment options for your optometrist visit. We accept payment by cash, check, and major credit cards.
If you are unable to pay for your eye care, please call our team. We may be able to set up a payment plan for you. We would be happy to discuss any financing needs you have prior to your appointment with our team.
