At Dr. Gary D. Polan, 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 patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of every appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
We are 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.
Accepted Vision Insurance Carriers:
- Vision Service Plan (VSP)
- Eyemed (Access Plan)
- Cigna Vision
- Met Life Vision
- MES Vision
Accepted Medical Plans:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Other plans out of network benefits (superbill provided)
Please ensure that your benefits are active, available, and in network by calling the +1 (800) number on the back of your insurance card
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 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 the options with you prior to any examination. We also accept cash, check, and all major credit cards. Call (310) 459-0055 for more.
