Lifewise is a for-profit, privately held corporation located in Portland, Oregon. The company was founded in 1986. We are out-of-network providers for Lifewise Vision insurance. This means that patients with this plan will need to pay our office directly for services and products and then contact Lifewise Vision plans for reimbursement. We can provide itemized receipts for your convenience when filing for reimbursement. We recommend calling Lifewise Vision before your appointment to verify the amounts you will be reimbursed.
Though it can be a little more paperwork to visit an Out-of-Network provider, one advantage is that there are no restrictions upon options for glasses and contact lenses that are often imposed by insurance companies so we are free to use the local, independent optical labs that we prefer due to the greater quality and accountability that we feel we can get for your eyeglasses from our local relationships with independent, Portland optical labs.
