At Ritter Hagee Optometry, our goal is promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of vision insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
Our knowledgeable staff is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision care. 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 for materials that may be the responsibility of the patient.
Note on medical vs. vision plans: for patients being routinely monitored for medical conditions such as cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, or various other eye conditions, examinations may be billed towards medical insurance, while refractions and eyewear may still be billed toward a separate vision insurance plan. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to know your coverage under your medical insurance plan.
We are participating providers for Medicare and most major medical and vision plans. Only the most common are listed here. If you do not see your plan below, please call our office to determine if your plan is accepted. If we are not a participant, it is likely you may submit your own claim for vision care or medical treatment for reimbursement for covered services. Our staff will assist you with any questions.
Contact one of our offices to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.
Flexible Spending Accounts/Health Saving Accounts
Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Saving Account (HSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred to as cafeteria plans and are elective supplemental 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 and HSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
