Home » Insurance Accepted at Our West Orange Eye Doctor

Dr. Alan B. Schlussel and Dr. Tao in West Orange NJ, accept a wide range of Vision and Health Insurance plans. Your vision insurance helps with the costs of an eye exam, eye care, eyeglasses, or other vision related expenses. Your vision insurance gives you the benefit of being able to receive regular eye exams that allow you to be proactive in looking after your eyesight:

There are two kinds of insurances that are applicable for a visit to your eye doctor.

  1. Vision Insurance
  2. Medical Insurance

Vision Insurance: 

Vision insurance is used to cover routine eye exams and assist in the payment of eyeglasses, frames and contact lenses. In some cases your vision insurance will also cover part of a procedure done by your eye doctor.

Health Insurance: 

Unlike vision insurance which is aimed at defraying the expense of your regular preventative eye care needs, health insurance covers medical eye care which is generally unforeseen. Your medical insurance will cover emergency eye care such as an eye infection, pink eye, and something stuck in your eye. It is also used for eye diseases such as dry eyes, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. In some cases your health insurance may also cover general eye care for children.

Insurance can be a difficult subject to navigate, our eye care team will be happy to assist you by phone in determining what your insurance covers for your specific situation.

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as medical insurance. Regular medical health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
