Insurance and Payments

At Eye Care For You, 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 Jacksonville patients about 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 Eye Care For You is experienced in working with vision insurance 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 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.

Contact our office at (904) 683-8444 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.

Medical Eye Insurance

Blue Cross/ Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Aetna, Cigna, Medicare are some of the medical plans that will cover "medical" conditions affecting the eye(s) or vision due to trauma, infection, systemic or ophthalmic disease entities. Examples of these are: floaters, flashing lights (photopsia), headaches, sensitivity to light, sudden loss of vision, foreign body, pink eye with or without discharge, etc.

Refractions which normally accompany yearly eye exams are usually not covered. This test helps determine the refractive state (prescription) of the eyes. From this diagnosis' of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism are found. Vision insurances always cover refractions which can then lead to glasses and contact lens prescriptions.

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 Jacksonville 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 Eye Care For You, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call (904) 683-8444 today to schedule your eye exam today.

  • "My first visit to Dr. Tirado was in 1999. He is very caring and a thorough doctor. I moved from Jacksonville spring 2008 and returned spring 2013. Needless to say, there was absolutely no hesitation to return to Dr. T for my yearly eye exams."

  • "All the swimming in my daily lifestyle made it difficult to wear soft contact lenses. My eyes would be dry and irritated at the end of the day. After discovering CRT lenses as a possible alternative, I scheduled an appointment. I was pleased by a welcoming, friendly, and enthusiastic atmosphere. On my second visit, I have issued my CRT lenses. After my first night with my lenses, my vision improved 20-30%. After 10 days my vision was 20/25 compared to my normal vision of 20/350. The contacts were initially uncomfortable and foreign, but I was determined to get through this phase. Almost a month later my vision is very close to perfect and my eyes give me no problems in the pool. It's also a cool feeling to be independent of contacts and glasses during the day. Overall I'm very happy with the amazing results and eager to note that each visit is an enjoyable experience."
