At Des Plaines Eye Care Center, our goal is promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept most insurance plans, cash, and most credit cards. We inform our Des Plaines patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
The knowledgeable staff at Des Plaines Eye Care Center is experienced in working with medical insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your insurance provider to submit claims regarding your eye care, based on the nature of your exams. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current medical plans are designed to cover many your eye care costs and 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. We accept vision insurance for your refraction and visual aid prescription needs such as glasses or contacts. We do not bill vision insurance for the timely portion of the exam.

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 insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
Other Payment Options
Our Des Plaines optometry staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating your insurance coverage. 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 Des Plaines Eye Care Center, we also accept cash, and major credit cards.
