Insurance and Payments

image of front desk assistant helping person fill out paperwork. At Hamburg Vision Center, our goal is promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept most medical insurances, cash, checks, and credit cards. We are more than happy to explain the finances of your visit before you arrive or schedule with us, so please call us with any questions!

Medical Insurance

For patients that have medical conditions like diabetes, cataracts, infections, and more, we may be able to bill your exam to your medical insurance.  Most medical insurance plans, including Medicare, are accepted at our office.  Our office is not a Medicaid provider. 

Vision Insurance

Dr. Santos strives to provide the best and most comprehensive care, as well as the best optical products, to our patients.  When a practice takes vision insurance, the expectation is set to spend less time with patients, and those practices are then heavily restricted on what labs and products to use - much of the time these products are not what is best for the patient.  In order to not have our hands tied to any particular companies and to provide the best care possible to our patients, Hamburg Vision Center does not take vision insurance directly. We can, however, fill out all necessary forms to simplify the process of receiving any out-of-network reimbursement that you are eligible for from your vision plan.

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.  In most cases, HVC is able to use your FSA/HSA cards to pay for your visit.

Other Payment Options

Our Lexington 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 at Hamburg Vision Center: cash, check, and major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express). Call (859) 327-3701 today to schedule your eye exam today.

No Insurance

For patients who have little or no vision insurance coverage, there is still a way for you to receive the care you need. To learn more about our payment options, please call our office directly.

We look forward to hearing from you.
