Insurance and Payments

Insurance ImageAt South Mall Optical & South Texas Optical, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We inform our patients about eye exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know. 

Vision Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at both locations are experienced in working with vision insurance.. We will work directly with you and your vision insurance 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 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.

If unsure about what vision insurance you have, you may also contact your health insurance to obtain information.

Our optometry staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating vision care. We do not want cost to be an obstacle to maintaining proper eye health.  Call us to schedule your appointment today at either one of our locations and please have your insurance information ready.
