Common Questions And Terms Regarding Vision Insurance
One of the most common questions we get about Vision Insurance involves the various terms on the policy. Some of the confusing terms that people might hear include:
Deductible: This term is used to describe the amount of money that people must pay before their Vision Insurance will kick in. In most cases, this amount resets each year; however, it can vary from policy to policy.
Co-pay: This is an amount that must be paid at each visit. This is typically about $5; however, some visits might not have any copay at all and other policies might have a co-pay of $20 or more.
Coinsurance: Some policies have something called coinsurance. This is the amount that someone has to pay for their healthcare services and is typically expressed as a percentage of the overall bill. Not every Vision Insurance will require someone to pay coinsurance.
In order to understand a Vision Insurance policy, people should read the fine print carefully. If you have any questions, just ask us!
