At Medina Eye Care, our goal is promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of medical insurances and vision plans, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our San Antonio patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
The knowledgeable staff at Medina Eye Care is experienced in working with medical insurance and vision plan providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision care. We strive to ensure that you understand your plan coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current 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.
Vision plan may not pay for eye care related to medical issues. However, your medical insurance often will. Make sure to discuss your coverage with your eye doctor, or the office staff.
The following is a list of the main insurances often see and accepted at Medina Eye Care. Please contact our office at (210) 225-4141 to find out if your plan provider 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 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 plans to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
Other Payment Options
Our San Antonio 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 Medina Eye Care, we also accept cash, check, CareCredit and major credit cards.
