At Hoosier Family Eyecare, 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. We inform our Ellettsville patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
The knowledgeable staff at Hoosier Family Eyecare 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 that are covered by the insured patient.
We participate with VSP, Medicare, Medicaid and HIP, Davis Vision, BCBS, Anthem, Vision Care Plan, Eyemed and many more. Plans and coverage vary. Our staff will contact your insurance company a day or two prior to your appointment to verify your coverage and, if necessary, obtain an authorization from them. If you would like to know about your benefits before you come in, please call your insurance company. You will be responsible for all of teh charges if we don't have your insurance information prior to your appointment. Please note, we are not in network for Spectera Vision, Caresource or any of the marketplace plans.
Flexible Spending Accounts
Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred o 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. You can check with human resources at your employer to see if your company offers this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
Other Payment Options
Our Ellettsville optometry staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating vision care providers. We do not want cost to be an obstacle to maintaining proper eye health and good vision. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Hoosier Family Eyecare, we always accept cash and checks, along with Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Call 812-876-6899 today to schedule your eye exam today.
