At Kirkwood Eye Center, we understand that the world of insurance can be a confusing one, but we are here to help! Your vision plan (VSP or Eyemed) and your medical insurance (e.g., United Health Care, Blue Cross, Aetna, Medicare) are very different in terms of the services they cover. In order to provide appropriate care, we want to ensure that our patients understand these differences.
There is no way to know prior to your examination by your doctor which type of insurance will be the right one to file your claim with. Therefore, we always ask for information for both your vision plan and your medical insurance, and we will always keep you informed as to which one will be utilized (and why) and will make every attempt to maximize your coverage and coordinate benefits when appropriate.
