Medical Coverage

Eye DisectionMedical insurance coverage is used to pay for eye exams when:

  • There are specific concerns that are medical in nature.
  • There is a previously diagnosed medical condition of the eye.
  • Health conditions are present that may damage the eye.
  • Some examples are:

  • Lazy Eye
  • Crossed Eyes
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Juvenile Arthritis
  • Eye problems related to  premature birth
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Headaches
  • Usually, you cannot use your routine vision coverage if you are being treated for a medical condition. You will need to bring some documentation from your plan that allows us to bill your plan for your care.

    Check with your plan to see if:

  • Dr. Waeltermann is in your plan or if you can go to any doctor you choose.
  • You need a referral. If you need a referral, please bring the referral to your appointment.
  • You have a Specialist copay and the amount of the copay
