Insurance

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:

Medical Plans we accept

  • Aetna
  • Anthem
  • Cigna
  • Medicare
  • United Health Care

We do accept other plans as well, so if you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.

In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the CDC has recommended that all routine eye care be deferred until further notice.

For the safety of our patients, our team, and the community, P.E.C. is complying with that recommendation. We are currently rescheduling annual eye examinations for patients without problems.

Our doctors are continuing to see patients with urgent and emergent eye problems.

Temporarily, our office is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday - Friday.

Please call 804-285-7638 before coming to the office so that we can address your questions and concerns on an individual basis.

If you are picking up contact lenses or eyewear, we would be happy to bring them to your car. We can also mail your contact lens supply without shipping charges.

After business hours, if you have an eye emergency, please call 804-205-7628 to speak to one of our doctors.

Stay safe. We very much look forward to seeing you in the future.
