This content was provided by Dr. Nicholson "Since we do not accept any vision or medical insurances, we work extra hard for you. We understand a tendency to go "where your insurance covers you"....but our philosophy is to "not treat you like an insurance patient". We can assist you in filing with your insurance company for "out of network benefits"...in many cases you can get reimbursed for visiting my office. Remember, Costco Optical DOES take some insurances, so call them to find out more. We are separate from them so you may have an insurance they accept."
