At our offices, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of vision insurance, cash and most credit cards. We 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.
Vision Insurance & Major Medical Insurance
The knowledgeable staff at Dr. Doolen’s offices are experienced in working with vision and major medical insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision/medical insurer to submit claims regarding your vision and/or medical eyecare. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current vision plans are designed to cover most 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.
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 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. For your convenience we accept Cash, Visa, Mastercard and Discover for all services, contacts and eyewear.
