There are many plans within each insurance carrier and we would be happy to call them to verify your benefits. Please contact us by calling 404-352-3414. Your insurance will allow you to see the doctor and most vision insurance will allow to you purchase glasses and contact lenses through the Wa-Mart Vision Center. If you want to use your medical insurance, you may want to come in during business hours as many insurance verification systems close by 5pm or call us so we can verify the insurance before you come.

We handle all 4 types of Medicaid programs (Peach State, Amerigroup, Wellcare, GHP) - We are available to help you and your child with eye exams and eyeglasses. If your child has Amerigroup, Wellcare, or Peach State, you can receive the glasses as soon as 2 weeks. We are equipped to handle Medicaid glasses at the Gresham Road Wal-Mart in east Atlanta (404)244-3990. If the Gresham Rd Wal-Mart maybe full for exams, we can fit you in for an exam at our Avondale/Decatur location (404) 284-0701 or our new Marietta location (770) 955-5019. You can get Medicaid glasses at the Avondale/Decatur Wal-Mart, Gresham Rd or Marietta Wal-mart location.

**Note: We do not take outside eyeglass prescriptions. You must see our doctor in order to receive the medicaid glasses. Unfortunately , Amerigroup does not cover routine eye exams or glasses for anyone over 21. We can accept Amerigroup for adults if you have a medical issue with your eyes. Anyone 21 years of age or older and has WellCare will pay a $10 co-pay for the exam and glasses. PeachState patients are eligible for a free eye exam and glasses whether you are a child or an adult. If you just have Medicaid(GHP) or Medicaid and Medicare, this Medicaid program will only allow children under 21 to receive glasses and this program may take more than 6 weeks to receive the glasses.
