We moved to out of network with VSP on December 31st 2021. We moved to out of network status with Eyemed all other vision plans in July of 2017.
Vision plans cost roughly $12 per month (VSP 2021). That’s $144 per year plus the required copay of around $20. That is $165 paid just to get your discount when our Exam Package is only $145. Vision plans also cause glasses prices to be artificially inflated so everyone gets a “discount.” If your employer pays for your plan, then it could cost you less; however, if they would pay you that money instead, it would save you to not use a vision plan. MONEY SAVING TIP: all eye doctor expenditures are health costs that Flex Spending and HSA accounts cover TAX FREE!
Reminder: Vision plans are just agreed discounts. They rarely insure anything with your eyes. Your medical insurance does cover eye exams for eye problems that glasses do not fix!
If the reason you need to see us is considered medical, or if your eye doctor requested you come back for medical reasons, then your medical plan covers the visit. If you are unsure how your visit will be billed, give us a call or text, and we can help out!
The quickest way to find out who your vision plan is through is usually a coworker or your HR department. Continue to the next section to learn how to use your out of network benefits
Every person’s vision plan benefits are different, sometimes even within the same family. We are more than happy to help you find this information. Using our exam package will save you over $100, then your plan will send the reimbursement directly to you. We now have access to a program designed specifically to help patients know everything they want to know before their exam, including if they have benefits available and how much the reimbursement will be. This program allows us to do all of the work FOR YOU! After we get a few details from you, we can tell you how much your reimbursement will be and then file the claim for you.
By not being forced to do things like use the vision plans’ lab or the frame lines they own, you end up with your glasses back faster and lasting longer because of the high-quality products we’re able to get for you versus what a plan allows. You also get more time with your doctor, upfront non-inflated prices, and no surprises at check out!
Every vision plan is different, even plans with the same group number or members within the same family. We’re able to get an estimate of what your reimbursement will be, and then we can file the claim entirely without you having to do a thing. You will get a copy of all receipts, as well as the explanation of reimbursement from your vision plan.
We are always here to help as much as we can!
Absolutely! We have always honored current prescriptions from other offices. However, very few places write the quality of lens recommendations that we do at Insight. Along with your full-time Rx, be sure to ask for your prescriptions for sunglasses and computer lenses!
Insight Eyecare wants the best care possible for you, and we truly believe we deliver that. If you simply cannot afford our exam savings package, our recommendations are Dr. Gosnell at Glenpool Eye Care, Twenty-Twenty Eyecare in Tulsa, or Advanced Family Eye Care in Coweta. Please call beforehand to make sure they are in network with your plan.
As a reminder, if you don’t find what you’re looking for, we are always happy to use your prescription from another office to get you the glasses you need!
