Insurance Image

At Dr. Sponsel's office, 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 San Antonio patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.

Medical Insurance

Dr. Sponsel's staff is experienced in working with many insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your insurer to submit claims regarding your eye care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current insurance plans are designed to cover most of the medical vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.

Contact our office at (210) 223-9292 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your coverage.

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.

Other Payment Options

Dr. Sponsel's 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 Dr. Sponsel's office, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call (210) 223-9292 today to schedule your eye exam today.
