Lifewise is a for-profit, privately held corporation located in Portland, Oregon. The company was founded in 1986. Lifewise offers a number of preferred provider organization plans, dental plans, and vision plans. We are in-network providers for Lifewise vision and medical plans. This means that if you have this plan for your routine eye care insurance, you will be able to use your benefits at Portland Eye Care easily and simply. We can take care of all the insurance filing for you, so you’ll only need to provide us with your policy information and we’ll take care of it. At the time of service you’ll just be responsible for any required copays or coinsurance amounts for services received. Generally, you will have an allowance that can be applied toward the purchase of contact lenses or eyeglasses, and you will only be responsible for any amount you choose to spend over your allowance.
Because Lifewise offers a number of different plans, it is important that we receive your insurance information before your exam, so we can have your benefits authorized and ready for you when you visit our office. That way, you’ll be able to make informed decisions balancing cost and benefits of various eye care products and services. The easiest way to send us your insurance information is to click “ONLINE FORM” on the right of the menu bar at the top of this page. This will take you to our secure online patient registration form where you can enter your insurance details as well as your ocular and medical history. If you have any questions about your Lifewise benefits, you can always call our office at 503-444-7639 and we’ll do our best to help you use your Lifewise insurance in a way that makes sense for both your eye health and your finances.
