If you’re looking to buy glasses online with insurance then you’ve come to the right place. In today’s day and age it’s relatively easy to order glasses online with insurance as there are a number of online eyeglasses that accept insurance. Once you select the frame fit that you think best compliments your face, it’s time to move forward to paying for the eyeglasses. For those customers who are interested in online glasses with insurance, we always recommend confirming with your insurance provider that they cover eyeglasses. Before ordering glasses online with insurance you’ll want to make sure that:
- You have vision insurance (Please note: vision insurance is often times different than general health insurance. We recommend confirming which type of insurance you have )
- If your insurance only covers prescription glasses or if they cover non-prescription or reading Blue Light filtering glasses as well. Many insurance companies have a fixed dollar amount you can use to cover or put towards a pair of eyeglasses online with insurance.
Using your FSA and HSA dollars
Another way to buy eyeglasses online with insurance is with your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) dollars. A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) lets you set aside pre-tax dollars for expenses related to health care (and that includes eye care). A lot of online glasses that take insurance are also eligible for FSA and HSA dollars as well. We recommend confirming that your provider covers Blue Light filtering glasses and check if there is a minimum magnification required for reimbursement.
You can shop and use your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) dollars on new Felix Gray glasses in most cases as long as your FSA or HSA card is affiliated with a major credit card. We always recommend reaching out to your insurance provider to confirm if you can purchase glasses online with insurance. Often times Flexible Spending Account dollars expire at the end of the year, so it’s worth keeping an eye on your timing to make use of your pre-tax dollars.
Some Flexible Spending Accounts let you purchase directly through our Felix Gray website and others provide reimbursements after the purchase. Make sure to confirm directly with your provider before purchasing your online eyeglasses with insurance. If you need a detailed invoice receipt from your Felix Gray purchase, log into your account, click on the order number, and click the ‘Invoice’ button. Felix Gray accepts Health Savings Account dollars for prescription eyewear purchases, readers, non-prescription, sleep glasses, and kids glasses if your card is affiliated with a major credit card provider.
Here at Felix Gray, in addition to prescription Blue Light filtering lenses, we also offer non-prescription and reading Blue Light glasses. While we currently don’t accept insurance directly, if you’re looking for online glasses with insurance, you can use the following steps to apply for reimbursement:
- Fill out a health insurer specific claim form
- Print your detailed invoice receipt and include with the claim form
You can find your detailed invoice receipt by logging into your Felix Gray account, clicking on the relevant order number, and clicking the “Invoice” button. The cost of the frame and lens will appear separately.
- Submit the claim form and receipt
Submit the claim form either by sending via email, mailing to the insurer address, or using the fax number provided.
- Get your money back
After submitting the claim, it typically takes 2 – 3 weeks to be reimbursed.
