Insurance Plans

***As of January 1, 2018, Mallard Eye Care will file all exams with a medical diagnosis including Diabetes, Cataracts, Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma through your medical insurance first, then your vision insurance (Coordinating your Benefits). This will offer you the best coverage for your eye exam possible.

Deductibles, coinsurance and/or copays will be billed to you after both insurances have paid.

I understand that I am financially responsible for all charges not paid by insurance.

Difference Between Medical and Vision Insurance

Vision Insurance is separate from Medical Insurance coverage. Vision Insurance is meant to cover simple, routine vision exams including a basic refraction procedure (eyesight testing for glasses/contacts prescription) and a basic eye health screening.

Medical Insurance covers a patient’s eye care visit when the doctor determines a medical diagnosis is a patient’s reason for their visit. Examples can be: eye infections, foreign body removal, sudden onset of flashers or floaters, double vision, eye pain, dry eye problems, blurred vision, headache, allergy eye issues or other symptoms. Medical Insurance would also cover eye doctor visits to monitor progressive eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, vitreous changes, corneal conditions, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration or when a patient’s general health issues and medications may be affecting their eyesight. The refraction procedure (eyesight testing for glasses/contacts prescription) done during the visit is typically not covered by Medical Insurance.
