At Dr. Gerber's Eye Care, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of vision insurance, cash, Care Credit and most credit cards. We inform our Bloomfield patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
(Please call if your insurance is not listed; some of the networks are comprised of hundreds of insurance companies, therefore we may very well participate with a plan not listed)
The knowledgeable staff at Dr. Gerber's Eye Care 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.
Contact our office at 860-243-8003 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision 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 Bloomfield optometry 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 Dr. Gerber's Eye Care, we also accept cash, Care Credit, and major credit cards. Call 860-243-8003 today to schedule your eye exam today.
