Learn about eye health
The Your Eye Care Team clinics accept a wide variety of medical insurances (e.g., Medicare, United Health Care, Humana, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, etc.) and several vision benefit plans (e.g., EyeMed, VSP and Superior Vision). Please note: we may not accept every plan from each of these companies; please contact us with details for verification.
To clear up some of the confusion that surrounds insurance, we verify eligibility for every patient prior to his or her visit to our office as a courtesy. While it is ultimately the patient’s responsibility to understand his or her coverage and benefits, we work hard to help you navigate the insurance maze. For that reason, please be sure to have your insurance information (both medical and vision coverage) available when contacting our offices.
We also offer an inhouse, direct-to-businesses discount program for both services (exams) and materials (eyeglasses). We partner with local small to medium sized businesses to allow them to bring discounted vision care to their employees at no cost to the employee or the business.

In today’s post, we will explain the various exams, the benefits covered and when each of the benefits apply.Read More
