At Eye Care Arkansas, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of medical and vision insurances, cash, checks, and credit cards. We inform our Little Rock patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
The knowledgeable staff at Eye Care Arkansas 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.
We participate with Aetna, AlwaysCare, Ambetter, Arkansas Firstsource, Arkids, Avesis, BlueCross Blue Shield, Cigna, Eyemed, Health Advantage, Medicaid, Medicare, Qualchoice, Superior Vision, Tricare, UMR, United Health Care (medical only), Vision Care Plan (VCP), Vision Service Plan (VSP), Wellcare, Windsor, and most major medical insurances.

This is a routine exam that addresses glasses and contact lens prescriptions along with assessing the overall health of the eye. If eye health problems are discovered, a follow up exam would be scheduled which would be billed to your medical insurance.
This is an office visit for such conditions as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and dry eye. Most complaints of pain, redness, swelling, itching, and loss of vision are related to eye health and would be billed to your medical insurance.
Contact our office at (501) 225-4488 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your coverage.
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 Little Rock 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 Arkansas, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call (501) 225-4488 today to schedule your eye exam today.
