At Eye Care North, we provide both medical and routine eye care.

Medical & Vision insurance plans are very different in terms of the services they cover and it is important for our patients to understand those differences.

At Eye Care North, we accept many medical insurance plans. Our doctor is a medical optometrist licensed to treat and manage diseases of the eye. When a medical diagnosis or condition is present (such as diabetes, eye infection, dry eye, allergies, or cataracts to name a few), our office can file a claim for your examination with your major medical insurance carrier. Medical insurance plans typically do not cover glasses or contacts. 

In addition to medical insurance, patients may also have a vision plan. Please be aware that vision plans are not insurance plans. In most cases they are discount plans that offer preventative eye wellness exams and eye wear products at a reduced cost. Our office is out-of-network for most vision plans. We can still see you as an out-of-network provider. This means you pay for your exam and glasses at the time of your visit, and submit a claim to the vision plan for reimbursement. We will provide you an itemized receipt to do so. Please check with your vision plan for out-of-network benefits. 

Prior to your eye exam, we will help you determine which insurance will best cover the cost based on your individual needs.
