Insurance Woes

It has been one of those days when I can't seem to get a thing done. I have been busily trying to find some place that will take my husbands insurance. All I have been looking for is an eyeglass place that will take his insurance. He has already had his exam, now her needs the glasses. Believe it or not I have been off and on the computer and phone since breakfast time. Finally I found a place that will take his insurance and not charge an arm and a leg for a pair of glasses. So, Friday he will be traveling over 50 miles to order a pair of glasses that will not cost an arm and a leg. Next I will be having an eye exam and getting new glasses. At least I know where to go. How has your day been? Hope it's a good one.

Usually you can call the insurance company; and they will give you a list of providers. That's what I did. Good luck with the one you found.

I did call the company after a bit. They finally found one over 40 miles away.

@HazySue Sorry that the only place you could find was so far away. I hope it will work out for both of you. My day has been ok.

Thankfully, I didn't have an experience like that with my insurance. It turns out that just about every single eyeglass place in my city takes my insurance. I don't know if I have good insurance, or it's just coincidence that everyone takes it. Anyway, I'm glad you found a place, even if it is 50 miles away. Road Trip time! lol

Lucky you. I don't know why there is such a problem finding someone to take the insurance. I had heard it was supposed to be a good insurance. I will be looking for a new one.

@HazySue When we had open enrollment for insurance, we had three plans to choose from. The first thing I did was look up the doctors under each plan and see if any of my current doctors were on the list. Sure enough, only one of the three plans had all of my doctors included on the list, so I chose that plan. Thankfully, in terms of expense, it was the middle plan, so I got lucky that it wasn't the most expensive plan.

Glad you finally found a place! Oh gosh, this reminds me we need to have our eyes checked - it's been a while.

My hubby has macular degeneration. I guess that may be why we have a bit of a problem finding someone who handles it.

@HazySue Ah - my mother in law has that. I hope he finds the glasses of his liking on today's trip!

Insurance is great, but areal pain. I'm glad you finally got it resolved.

It is a pain as you said. But without it it is so expensive.

@HazySue I know, but with all the red tapeand hooops you have to go through, it's like a non-paying job to save money.

Taht is too bad. Many buy them online these days. Very inexpensive. A hot day here.

My hubbys glasses need special lenses. As for me, I will be buying online.

I think it is terrible that places don't accept insurance so easily. Why have it if no one will take it? Glad you were able to find a place that will. Hope things go well when you get your eyes examined.

I think ordering online is the cheapest, at least it was for my childrens' glasses. Of course, you don't get expert fitting like you do at the optometrist.

I have found that it is cheaper to buy glasses online. Unfortantly my husbands glasses need special lenses.

I was lucky my optometrist takes my vision insurance from work. I know that felt like an awful chore.

It was a chore. At least we know there is someone who takes the insurance even if it is a bit of distance.
