Vision therapy is an investment in your future, how can you top improving your quality of life?

Are you an in-network provider?

Minnesota Vision Therapy Center is an out-of-network provider for all major medical insurance companies.  If you have any coverage, it would be through major medical policy, not vision insurance.

Who submits insurance claims?

You are responsible for submitting any insurance claims, but we make it easy for you.  We will provide you with a receipt after each session, which can be used to submit a claim.  The receipt will include diagnosis codes and all other information needed to submit a claim.  Every insurance policy’s claim submission process is different, so be sure to ask yours about their procedures.

Will my insurance cover vision therapy?

While most insurance policies do not cover the costs of vision therapy, some cover a small portion.  It is up to you to contact your insurance company to determine what coverage is available according to your policy.  We will provide you with diagnosis and procedure codes at the consultation.  You will need these codes to contact your insurance company to determine if you have coverage for vision therapy.

Even with little or no insurance coverage, many patients choose to invest in vision therapy anyway.  It is important to recognize that just because an insurance company chooses not to cover vision therapy, this does not take away the validity or the need for vision therapy.  You’ll need to decide what’s right for your family.

Why should we choose an out-of-network provider for vision therapy?

To our knowledge, all vision therapy clinics in our area are out of network.  Some clinics who perform vision therapy may be listed as in-network with your insurance, but this is typically for primary care only.
Many families pay a large portion out of pocket for vision therapy, regardless of network coverage.  Therefore, when choosing a vision therapy clinic keep in mind factors like expertise, certification, program options, and success rates.  Learn more about our team.
