Vision Insurance

Vision and Medical Insurance in Bakersfield, CA

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

Because Premier Eyecare Optometric Center provides both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs. Here are just some of the plans that we accept:

Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Medicare, United HealthCare, SISC Blue Cross, Gemcare, County of Kern EPO, County of Kern POS, Grimmway EPO, Health Net.

Vision Service Plan (VSP), Superior Vision, EyeMed, Medical Eye Services (MES), California Water Foundation, Adventist Health, United Food Workers, Southern California Drug, Southern California Pipe Trades, UMR.

We do accept other plans as well, so if you do not see your plan listed here, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist you. Our staff is also always available to answer any questions regarding your benefits.
