Payment Options

Insurance Image

At Family Eye Care, 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 Childress patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.

Medical Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at Family Eye Care is experienced in working with medial insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your medical insurer to submit claims regarding your eye care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. 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 940-937-2015 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your coverage.

Care Credit

CareCredit helps you pay for out-of-pocket healthcare expenses for you and your family. Once you are approved, you can use it to help manage health, wellness, and personal care costs not covered by insurance. You can apply online at www.carecredit.com or ask for an application from our receptionist.

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 Childress 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 Family Eye Care, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call 940-937-2015 today to schedule your eye exam today.
