At Hamburg Vision Center, our goal is 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 Lexington patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
We do not bill your vision discount plan directly, although in most cases we will fill out a reimbursement form for you and your plan may send you a reimbursement check that is dependent on your specific benefits. You will be required to pay up front for your exam. The reason we do not deal with Vision plans directly are as follows: (I have attached a letter I send to our patient describing our reasons if you could please add the wording from that letter under the vision insurance part then that would be great. under "insurance" please change that to Medical Insurance and state that we take most major medical insurances including Medicare for patients who need exams that have a medical basis to them like diabetes, cataracts, infections, or discomfort or changes in vision that may occur secondary to a problem with your eyes.
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.

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 and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Hamburg Vision Center, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards.
