Insurance and Payments

At Helmus Optometry, 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, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.

Vision Insurance

We serve patients both without and with insurance. We accept many insurance plans, including VSP, Medicare, MES (Medical Eye Services), EyeMed including UC Davis SHIP and GSHIP, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, and more. Call our office if you have questions about insurance eligibility, or contact your insurance provider directly.

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.


Use CareCredit to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by vision or medical insurance. This form of payment is not accepted everywhere, but we are very excited to offer this option to our patients! We put the flexibility of credit card financing in your hands, on terms that are most beneficial to you.

Ask about our CareCredit promotions, and see if this option is right for you! Promotions with CareCredit can change often, so it is best to check with us prior to your next visit.

Other Payment Options
Our Davis 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 Helmus Optometry, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call (530) 601-4261 today to schedule your eye exam today.
