Vision vs. Medical Insurance

Many of the questions we receive at Everett And Hurite have to do with insurance. One particularly common question is whether or not visiting patients can use general medical insurance, rather than vision insurance, to cover their visit.

For most patients at Everett And Hurite, the type of insurance that they can use to cover their visit will primarily depend on the purpose of their appointment. Our staff members are qualified to deliver two key types of examinations: wellness vision exams and medical eye exams. While these exams often contain similar testing and procedures, insurance companies classify them as two different types of exams. The companies make this distinction based on the purpose of the exam and your appointment overall:

  • Wellness vision exams are the standard eye exam that patients undergo annually. These basic vision exams include screenings for eye disease and eye refraction tests (which determine the prescription you’ll need for 20/20 vision if you wear glasses or contacts). Wellness vision exams are often only covered by vision insurance.
  • Medical eye exams are visits scheduled specifically to diagnose and/or treat a medical condition within the eye. These exams are often scheduled as a follow-up to a routine exam, as abnormalities and health issues typically appear in tests during a standard wellness vision exam. Medical eye exams are often covered by medical insurance.

While these are the standard rules for vision and medical insurance use at a vision center, some specific health plans may cover additional items than what is listed here. This means that depending on your insurance plan, your medical insurance may actually cover some aspects of your eye care. Given the complexities of different health insurance policies, we always recommend that you call your insurance company or speak with your HR department to verify your specific plan’s benefits and coverage before you visit Everett And Hurite. Your insurance company is the best source to answer questions about your coverage.

You should also clarify which company or companies cover your vision and medical insurance, as two different companies often cover these insurance policies. Confirming this information before an appointment will avoid any confusion or problems when you come to our offices for your exam. 

Important Information about Medicare

At Everett & Hurite, we regularly see patients who ask what Medicare will and will not cover. While we always recommend that patients talk to their doctors and providers directly to confirm how much of a specific test, item, or service will be covered by Medicare and/or insurance policies, there are some general Medicare rules and guidelines that you can expect to see in place at our practice:

It’s important for patients to keep these limitations in mind when they schedule an appointment, particularly if they hope to use Medicare to cover their visit. Because of this, you will need to sign the document entitled "Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage" (ABN).

Additionally, we encourage patients to remember that doctors may sometimes recommend services that are NEVER covered by Medicare or by a patient’s insurance. For these services, it’s important to always ask questions and to communicate with your healthcare provider so that you are not surprised by any bills you receive after the visit or if payment is required at the time of the visit.

Finally, because a variety of factors can affect the final cost of a doctor’s visit, we encourage patients who are concerned about the cost of their visit to speak to their insurance providers and doctors about ways they can receive the care they need while also taking steps to reduce the cost of doing so.

  • Dr. Chang was amazing - competent, kind, caring, and willing to answer all of my questions about my cataract surgery. I cannot say enough about the staff - receptionists, nurses, scheduler - at the Greensburg Office as well as the Shadyside surgical center. The nurses and anesthesiologist at the surgical center were absolutely stellar. Thank you so much!

  • I had been taking my dad here for quite a while for Macular Degeneration before he passed, and I must give this place much praise. You might have a little bit of a wait before seeing the doctor, but that only proves how highly rated and competent they are. The staff is very friendly, accommodating and helpful, and Dr. Rosenberg very professional, knowledgeable, resourceful, and kind. His exams are very thorough! The Retina surgery my dad had was a complete success. I highly recommend to anyone needing specialized eye treatment to go ahead and make your appt. You won't be disappointed.

  • My daughter started seeing Dr. Herzig the week of her 2nd birthday. She is now 15 and haws bifocals all of this time. We all LOVE Dr. Herzig (Briana calls her Dr. Horsie because she couldn't pronounce it when she was little). She is so wonderful!!!! She is understanding, compassionate and you can tell she loves what she does. She treats her patients like they are her own children. I would recommend her to everyone!!
