At Pearl, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept most types of vision insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. If you require a breakdown of costs before your exam, please let us know, and we are happy to provide it.
The knowledgeable staff at Pearl is very experienced in working with most vision insurance plans. 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 - Tukwila 206-246-5430 or Tacoma 253-472-1188 - to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.
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 help you save money in an pre-tax account to pay for healthcare 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.
A Final Note
Our Pearl optometry staff understands that cost can be 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 work with Medicare and Medicaid insurances, and offer budget eyewear packages to ensure everyone has access to vision correction. Call our office at Tukwila 206-246-5430 or Tacoma 253-472-1188 today to schedule your eye exam.
