Accepted Insurances

Tippett Eye Care accepts most major insurances for eye care. Please take a moment to view the list found below, or feel free to call our office for more information on insurance issues.

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be real concern, especially for large families. Your vision insurance will lower these annual expenses. If you are unsure about your coverage, please give us a call at 706.738.1102 and we will be happy to review your insurance for you. If you do not have insurance, please consider our three year plan, which could save you hundreds.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

We accept most vision care insurances and file for both medical and routine examinations. Please contact us to discuss your insurance options and to find out if you are covered.

If your insurance is not listed above, please feel free to give us a call at 706.738.1102 and we will be happy to review your benefits before your appointment.

Our office takes the health and safety of our patients and team very seriously. After careful consideration, Tippett Eye Care has elected to reduce our services at both locations for the unforeseeable future.

Although our office will be closed, we will have a team on hand to answer questions, make appointments, take eyewear and contact lens orders, and schedule curbside pick-ups via phone. Please call our office to schedule a pick- up time so we may bring them out of the office for curbside pick-up. You may also elect to have materials directly shipped. We will return any messages left throughout the week within 24 hours. Messages left over the weekend will be returned on Monday.

Dr. Tippett will be available for eye emergencies such as sudden vision changes, injuries, red eyes, and other urgent issues. We will be using telemedicine and in-office treatment. Please call our office so we may address your concerns. Our office will make every effort to help you avoid the emergency room. Please note, no patients will be granted entry into the office without approval of an emergency appointment by Dr. Tippett or a team member.
