Insurance Image

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

Major Medical Insurance

Our office accepts many major medical insurances including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, United Healthcare, Medicare and Medicare Replacement Plans. Medical insurance usually provides eye examination coverage for eye diseases or systemic diseases that can affect the eye such as: pink eye, eye infections, eye injuries, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes or hypertension. Deductibles and co-pays may apply. Please consult your insurance plan to determine West Georgia Vision Center's participation.

Vision Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at West Georgia 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 706-882-0616 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage. Our office participates in VSP (Vision Service Plan) and Humana Vision Care Plan.

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 LaGrange 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.  At West Georgia Vision Center, we accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call 706-882-0616 today to schedule your eye exam today.
