Medical & Vision Insurance

We want what is best for you. Our friendly and informed insurance team is happy to guide you through the maze of  insurance carriers.

What’s the Difference?

Vision care plans or “discount plans” only contribute partial payment toward one basic vision exam and contribute partial payment toward select frames, lenses, and contact lenses. Vision plans do not cover diagnosis, management or treatment of eye diseases that Dr. Tisdal are specifically educated and trained to watch for on your behalf. In most cases, additional visits are necessary to coordinate your care and protect your vision.

Medical insurance must be used if you have any eye health problem, minor surgical procedure(s) performed, or if you have a systemic health problem that has ocular complications.  Dr. Tisdal will determine if these conditions apply to you; some are determined by your case history. If you have both types of insurance plans it may be necessary for us to bill some services to one plan and other services to the other.

Also, please understand, that with almost all plans, you will have some kind of out of pocket expense due on the day of your visit.

Don’t see your insurance company here? Wondering what your vision plan will contribute to your basic exam? Contact our insurance and billing specialists for complimentary assistance at (580) 772-2819.
