The knowledgeable, friendly staff at Vision Source of Alexandria is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision correction procedure. 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 many 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.

Amerihealth Caritas (medical and routine vision accepted)
Louisiana Health Care Connections (medical and routine vision accepted)
United Health Care Community Plan (medical and routine vision accepted)

Contact our office at (318) 442-7787 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 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 Alexandria 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 procedure. At Vision Source of Alexandria, we also accept cash, and major credit cards. We also accept CareCredit. Call (318) 442-7787 today to schedule an appointment.
