Insurance & Payments at Houston Eye Doctor

Employee of a vision center discussing insurance information with a patient.

At Houston Eye Doctor, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable our patients to have the clearest vision possible. We don’t believe that an unfortunate financial situation should limit a customer’s access to quality vision services, and that is why we accept several types of vision insurance, cash, credit cards, Medicaid and Medicare at our vision clinics. We inform our patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of appointments and pride ourselves on our transparency when it comes to a breakdown of pricing.

Vision Insurance

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 that are covered by the insured patient.

Eye Doctors Who Accept Medicaid & Medicare

While other practices may deny these forms of coverage, Houston Eye Doctor is happy to serve patients looking for an eye doctor that accepts Medicaid and Medicare. Our staff of professional optometrists are working to improve vision in Texas, regardless of a patient’s form of coverage.

Flexible Spending Accounts for Eye Care Services

Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred to 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. Check with the benefits administrator at your work to see if you are eligible for this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.

Choose Houston Eye Doctor for Affordable Eye Care

Our 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. We also accept vision insurance, cash, credit cards, Medicaid, and Medicare.
