At Bridgetown Optometric Associates, our goal is to 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 patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
Vision and Medical Insurance
The knowledgeable staff at Bridgetown Optometric Associates is experienced in working with vision care plans and medical insurances. We will work directly with you and your insurer to submit claims regarding your care. We strive to ensure that you understand your coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits.
Many current vision plans are designed to cover a good portion 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. Contact our office to have us help you understand what your vision care plan coverage is.
Medical coverage is a touch more complex as it covers so much more than your eyes. There may be deductibles, co-insurance, and many other confusing aspects of your plan. We strive to make sure that you understand your coverage. Contact our office to have us help.
Flexible Spending Accounts
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 other health related items. 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.
