The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept >>
BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD
We also offer our own vision plan called VIP*. Singles pay $65 per year with a $10 co-payment for the eye exam, $30 additional for contact lens wearers. Families pay $100 per year with a $10 co-payment for each family member for their exam, $30 additional for each contact lens wearer. The plan includes a 30% discount off eyeglasses.
*VIP only available at participating locations (Towson, Mt. Airy, Catonsville.) See store for details.
We also offer a Kid's club. All children under the age of 14 can join. The cost is $25 per year and provides a 50% discount off a second pair of glasses and includes the six month eye exam. This is important because kid's eyes change with their growth pattern and insurance plans only pay for an exam once a year and only cover one pair of glasses. A back up pair for kids can be a real lifesaver.
We do accept other plans as well, so if you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.
