If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.

Medical and Vision Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at EYE CENTERS OF HATTIESBURG is experienced in working with both medical and vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your 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 a number 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.  Anything beyond the scope of routine vision would be covered by your medical insurance.  Medical Insurance covers eye exams due to medical problems such as: cataracts, diabetes, dry eyes, eye infections, eye related allergies, foreign body in the eye, glaucoma, headaches, history of a stroke, hypertensive retinopathy, macular degeneration, or a sty. 

Contact our office at (601)385-2128 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office.

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 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 care credit, cash, credit cards, FSAs, health savings account(HSA, through accepted insurances) and most insurances. Call us today to schedule your eye exam.
