MES Vision, also known as Medical Eye Services Vision, is a vision insurance plan that began in 1976 based in California. They are not as large as some of the larger vision insurance providers, but we still do see a fair number of patients with this plan in Portland. One advantage to this plan is that it has no restrictions upon selection of optical labs for our patients’ eyeglasses, 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.
We are in-network providers for MES Vision insurance. This means that we can file your claim directly, so you will only need to pay any applicable co-pays or amounts above your allowance for your eye exam, contact lens fitting, or purchase of eyeglasses or contact lenses. MES Vision plans generally provide coverage for your eye exam and an allowance toward eyeglasses or contact lens services.
Please make sure to tell us that you have MES Vision insurance when you schedule your appointment so we can verify your benefits before your exam. Often we will be able to authorize your benefits with just your full name and date of birth, but sometimes they will require your identification number issued by their organization, so please provide this as well if you know it when filling out our online patient registration form. This form is located on the right of our website menu bar, marked “ONLINE FORM.”
If you have any questions about your MES Vision plan, please don’t hesitate to call our office and we can help explain the details of your particular plan.
