Insurance Image

At Bowersox Vision Center, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of vision insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our Shelbyville patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.

Vision Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at Bowersox Vision Center is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. 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 a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.

Contact our office at 502-647-3937 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.

Medical Insurance

Bowersox Vision Center accepts most major medical insurance plans for eye exams.  Medical insurance can be used at our office for eye exams for conditions such as diabetes, foreign body removal, glaucoma, cataracts, pink eye, macular degeneration, dry eye, or allergies.  Medical insurance and vision insurance are different.  Our staff can help you determine which type of insurance is appropriate when you make your appointment.

Contact our office at 502-647-3937 to find out if your medical insurance is accepted at our office or for more information about your medical coverage.

CareCredit

CareCredit is accepted at Bowersox Vision Center.  With CareCredit, you can pay for any medical care including eye care.  Our knowledgeable staff can provide more information about how to apply.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Many employers are offering 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.

Other Payment Options

Our Shelbyville 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. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Bowersox Vision Center, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call 502-647-3937 today to schedule your eye exam today.
