At Family Eye Clinic, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept most major medical insurances as well as most vision plans, Care Credit, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We do our best to 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.
Medical and Vision Plans
The knowledgeable staff at Family Eye Clinic is experienced in working with insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your insurance plan to submit claims regarding your eye care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.
Vision Benefit (examples plans VSP, Eyemed, Superior)
This is a routine exam that addresses glasses and contact lens prescriptions along with assessing the overall health of the eye. If eye health problems are discovered, a follow up exam would be scheduled which would be billed to your medical insurance.
This is an office visit for such conditions as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and dry eye. Most complaints of pain, redness, swelling, itching, and loss of vision are related to eye health and would be billed to your medical insurance.
Contact our Sherwood office at 501-835-7800 or our Little Rock office at 501-888-7533 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.
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 often laser vision surgery. 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 plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
Other Payment Options
Our optometry staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating eye care providers. We do not want cost to be an obstacle to maintaining proper eye health and good vision. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Family Eye Clinic, we also accept Care Credit, cash, check, and major credit cards. Call our Sherwood office 501-835-7800 or our Little Rock office at 501-888-7533 today to schedule your eye exam today.
