Eyedentity accepts a wide range of insurance plans — opening our doors to all patients in need of care services. 


Most vision insurance companies work in conjunction with medical insurance companies. There are many options for vision insurance providers including VSP, Premera, etc. They all have their own specific coverage benefits and amounts, but in general they will cover a routine eye exam once every 12 or 24 months and contribute an amount of money to a hardware purchase (Glasses or Contact Lenses).


When we look up your information, we are given limited knowledge of your insurance plan and any information we provide is not a guarantee of benefits, eligibility, or participation. If you’re not eligible, your exam won’t be covered by your insurance and it will become your full responsibility to pay for services rendered. 

We strongly advise you to contact your insurance carrier to 
confirm your eligibility, and our participation in your plan, 
prior to booking an exam or placing an order.

Usually, covered individuals pay a copay or coinsurance (a percentage of the cost of an exam). Vision insurance rarely has a deductible. If you're looking for vision insurance, please make sure you are picking one with benefits that you like!

Medical insurance plans generally cover office visits that are for medical conditions. For instance, if you have been diagnosed with cataracts, dry eyes, diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, high blood pressure, etc., then your health insurance may cover the specialist office visit after you have paid your co-pay or co-insurance amount. They will usually also cover visits for reasons like pink eye, if your eyes are injured in an accident, if you get a foreign body in your eye, allergies, eye diseases, etc. Please note that deducitbles do apply to most medical visits and may result in a bill.

Medicare Plan B, as well as most insurance plans that follow Medicare guidelines, stipulate that refractions are a non-covered service. They also specify that if we do not charge you for your refraction, and bill it correctly, we are committing insurance fraud. We are also required, by law, to collect your plan's listed copay or coinsurance for services rendered. Supplement plans may pay for all or a portion of your coinsurance, etc. If your plan does pay, we will reimburse you after they payment arrives.  ---- Read more: 


Please make arrangements for your referral, if needed, prior to your appointment.  

A routine exam my turn into a medical visit if your reason for coming in is considered medical or you are diagnosed with a medical condition. These diagnoses are usually for dry eye, pre-glaucoma/glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Dr. Atkins will discuss any conditions that are diagnosed and any treatment plans that may be necessary. He may refer you to a specialist or recommend that you return after a specific amount of time for a follow-up to see how the treatments are working and if he needs to make any changes. If your diagnosis is border-line, he may ask you to return to take a base-line visual field test. Having the results will help him determine if your condition is worsening over the years.
