At Erie Family Eyecare, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our Erie patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
Many ocular conditions are covered under medical plans. If you have experienced a trauma or are suffering from red eyes, cataracts, or other ocular conditions, your visit will likely be covered under your medical insurance plan. In addition, certain systemic conditions, such as diabetes, allow us to bill your medical insurance for your visit.
Erie Family Eyecare is a network provider for several medical insurances. If we are not in-network, we can help you bill your medical plan out-of-network.

Vision Discount Plans
The knowledgeable staff at Erie Family Eyecare is experienced in working with vision plans. We will work directly with you and your vision plan to submit claims regarding your care. We strive to ensure that you understand your 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 303-828-9877 to find out if your vision plan 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 Erie 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 examination. At Erie Family Eyecare, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards.
