Insurance and Payments

Insurance ImageAt Central Iowa EyeCare, our goal is promote good eye health and enable you to have the best vision possible. We accept several types of health insurance including: Medicare, Blue Cross, United Healthcare/UMR, Aetna, Coventry, Iowa Medicaid and several others. We also honor the vision plans VSP, Metlife Vision, and Avesis. For non-covered services and materials we accept cash, checks, and debit or credit cards. If you have questions before or after your exam about cost, please let us help you understand your benefits.

Vision Plans

The knowledgeable staff at Central Iowa EyeCare is experienced in working with vision plan providers. We will work directly with you and your vision plan to submit claims regarding your vision 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 many 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 at (515)576-1261 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 vision 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 Central Iowa EyeCare, we also accept cash, check, debit and major credit cards.
