At Advanced Valley Eye Associates, we believe that vision correction should be made affordable to you. We accept a variety of insurance plans, financing options and payment choices, such as cash, personal checks, money order, cashier's check, or credit card.
Please have the following insurance information available at the time of your scheduled appointment. Review the financing information below to be aware of your options.
Most "Vision plans" can be accepted in our office. We've been providers for VSP (Vision Service Plan) and MES (Medical Eye Services) for many years, and can work with them for your coverage.
These plans may contribute towards glasses and contacts, as well.
Sometimes an examination begins with a routine "Vision Testing" visit, but if medical problems are found, certain tests may be ordered. It's very helpful to have your medical insurance on file.
We offer complimentary insurance planning, and will help you acquire prior authorization for covered procedures as needed.
If your medical insurance is an HMO plan (like HealthNet or Secure Horizons), please be certain that we can see you as part of your chosen "Medical Group." We are the preferred local provider for Sutter Medical Group and U.C. Davis Medical Group. If you have any questions, please contact your primary care provider (PCP) and confirm that you can be referred for our care.
Note: Members of Woodland Healthcare, Hills Physicians, and Kaiser will probably NOT have coverage outside their group. We are still happy to see and evaluate you for your medical needs, but you will be responsible for payment at the time of service.
At Advanced Valley Eye Associates, we have partnered with Care Credit to provide you with a flexible financing option, so cost does not need to prevent you from achieving better vision. CareCredit is an alternative to your insurance plan, and can be used towards LASIK, Refractive Lens Exchange, Premium Implants, and even glasses!

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) are benefits which are offered by many employers. These plans allow you to cover eligible medical expenses using pre-tax dollars. Elective services such as LASIK, premium lens implants and other procedures are usually covered by FSA's and HSA's. Talk to your the Human Resources department for your employer to learn more and find out if this benefit is available to you.
