Is it ever possible to bill both medical and vision insurance on the same date?

September 27, 2016


Some vision insurance plans will cover a refraction (see above) on the same date as an office visit for a medical condition (with the medical insurance covering the office visit).

It is the patient’s responsibility to determine whether their vision insurance plan allows the refraction to be billed separately on the same date as a medical eye examination. If the vision insurance will not pay for the refraction on the same day, then this service needs to be performed on a different day or the patient is responsible for payment for the vision examination component of the office visit. (NOTE: Community Eye Care and many BCBS plans do not allow medical and routine billing for the same visit)
