Vision Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at Peepers of Severna Park 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 most 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.

Our eye care clinic in Severna Park accepts almost EVERY insurance plan including…

  • VSP
  • CareFirst BlueCross/BlueShield
  • Davis
  • EyeMed
  • Tricare
  • OptumHealth/Spectera
  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • VBA
  • Superior Vision
  • Medicare
  • Avesis

Contact our office at 410-774-4425 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.

No Insurance? Don’t worry. Our eye exams start at just $95 and we offer $100 off a complete pair of eyeglasses for our self-pay patients. We also provide great AAA and AARP discounts.


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 Severna Park 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 Peepers of Severna Park, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call 410-774-4425 today to schedule your eye exam today.
