At Christenson Vision Care, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of insurance (medical and vision), cash, checks, most credit cards, and CareCredit. We do our best to inform our patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment if requested. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
Christenson Vision Care accepts VSP, EyeMed Access, and EyeMed Insight vision insurance plans. The knowledgeable opticians at Christenson Vision Care are experienced in working with our vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision care. 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 you to pay a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are not covered.
Many medical insurance plans cover one routine eye exam per year. Christenson Vision Care accepts several different medical insurance plans and will submit directly to your medical insurance on your behalf.
Many employers are offering a 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.
Our Hudson optometry 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 those patients who don't have insurance coverage or choose to not submit to insurance: A 20% same-day courtesy discount is offered for professional services when paid on the day of services rendered. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Christenson Vision Care, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards and CareCredit. Call (715) 381-1234 today to schedule your eye exam today.
