Direct Billing For Eyewear and Vision Services

Direct Billing

Direct Billing for Eyewear and Vision Services with Your Brighton, Trenton, and Belleville Optometrist

Direct insurance billing is a service we provide to our patients who would prefer not to deal with making sure complicated insurance documents reach their vision or medical insurer. Our Brighton staff handles everything involved with insurance billing--follow-ups, email communications and disputes that may arise. Direct billing also ensures your claim is accepted by your insurance agency before you meet with your optometrist for an appointment. If you are interested in direct billing services, we would be happy to answer your questions about this service.

More About Direct Billing in Trenton

When your eye doctor bills your insurance company direct, you save a lot of time and aggravation by allowing us to take care of reimbursements. In addition, if your vision/medical insurance agency is offering special promotions, you can take advantage of these by expediting billing. Direct billing also eliminates any paperwork you might need to fill out after submitting a claim. Once we bill your insurance company direct, you no longer need to worry about the outcome or future issues.

How to Take Advantage of Direct Billing

The next time you visit your Belleville optometrist, just bring your driver's license or other photo ID and your health/vision insurance card containing your policy number. For people with insurance cards that do not feature a member ID number, find the number on your insurance papers, write it down and bring it with you. We accept the following health insurance providers:

  • Blue Cross


  • Chamber of Commerce Group Insurance

  • Desjardins

  • First Canadian

  • Great-West Life

  • Green Shield

  • Industrial Alliance, Johnson

  • Manulife Financial

  • Maximum Benefit

  • Sun Life Financial,
