Maximizing Your Insurance Benefits Up Until The New Year

New Year Fireworks

Check Your Remaining Insurance Benefits

We are fast approaching the end of the 2018 calendar year, which means insurance benefits are about to change or reset. Unlike regular health insurance that often demands you fulfill a large deductible first, vision insurance tends to have a minimum amount of immediate coverage or co-coverage. If your plan allows you to get any fully or mostly covered vision services, go to University Vision Centre in El Paso and use up whatever the plan offers. Once the new year begins, those old benefits won't roll over.

Sure, You Could Wait

If you haven't had your eyes checked for a while and have a covered vision exam allowed on your insurance both this year and next, why would it matter if you let your current benefits expire? Wouldn't you just get the same coverage again next year? Of course you would, but by letting your current benefits expire, you're making it harder to keep track of your sight. Say you wait until January and use your new benefits to cover an exam and glasses. If you notice a change in your vision later in the year, you might not be able to get another covered appointment, depending on what your insurance plan offers. Waiting would cost you money.

Now, what if you got your eyes checked now, using your last 2018 benefits? That leaves your 2019 coverage at the ready in case you need to go back to the optometrist for another appointment -- that second exam would now be covered by your insurance.

Take Advantage of Covered Optometry Services Now

If you can get optometry services that are fully or mostly covered, take advantage of that fact and call 915-533-1811 for an appointment now. Your El Paso eye doctor is waiting to see you at University Vision Centre.
