Services for eye examinations and many eye conditions are reimbursable under vision care plans or major medical insurance, depending on the diagnosis of your condition. We are participating providers with a number of vision-care specific plans, including Vision Service Plan, Vision Care Direct and Blue Cross/Blue Shield of AZ. We are also Medicare participating providers and accept assignment from Medicare and many supplemental policies. We also accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Health Care, and many Cigna PPO medical plans. These are always subject to change, so please contact our administrators to find out if we have recently contracted with your vision care or medical plan.

To help you expedite your reimbursement, if we are not a participating provider with your plan, we will provide a complete “insurance ready” statement that can be sent in with your own signed major medical form. Please contact our business office to see if we participate in your insurance plan.

See our Insurance page for more information.

Vision Care Direct

policies 2In the interests of providing our patients more comprehensive vision insurance at fair prices, Tempe Eye Care Associates has joined with other Phoenix area opticians to offer Vision Care Direct. Find out more about Vision Care Direct here.


Our fee schedule reflects the highest quality of professional services and eye care products. Unless covered by your major medical or vision care plan, payment is required at the time services are rendered. When you place an order for eyewear (glasses and contact lenses), a prepayment of fifty percent (50%) is requested, with the balance due upon delivery. Contact lens service fees (examination and fitting) are due at the time of your visit. Your vision health is our highest priority, and we are confident we can accommodate your individual situation.


We provide a number of payment options including cash, personal check, major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover). Please let us know any time there are extenuating circumstances regarding our fee policy.
