Need help better understanding eye care deductible? With the end of the year approaching, it made us think about insurance deductibles. Does anyone really understand how they work? We found an article, Managing Your Deductible by Dr. Oz that actually does a good job explaining the differences between deductibles, out-of-pocket expenses, etc.
Dr. Oz explains that a “deductible is the amount you have to pay out-of-pocket before the insurance company starts paying your covered health care expenses. For example, if your deductible is $250, you have to spend $250 for doctor’s visits or for prescription medications before your health insurance company will start to pay”.
With changes to your health care coverage approaching, who knows what will happen to your deductibles or how much coverage you will have. If you have already met or are close to meeting your deductible, now is the time to make that eye appointment you have been putting off. You could end up saving money and seeing clearly in time for the holidays.
