What is the Wellness Scan?
The iWellness scan is an easy-to-read report that displays the thickness of your retina and your ganglion cell complex as compared to a database of normal eyes. These metrics along with a high-resolution image and symmetry analysis help to identify if you are displaying the early signs of retinal disease or glaucoma.
Will insurance pay for my scan?
The Wellness Scan is a procedure you can add onto your regular exam for $35. It is not covered by insurance.
If the doctor finds you have a medical concern that can be more accurately visualized through the OCT, we will be able to bill your medical insurance for the scan, however it is not covered by typical vision insurance. As with any medical billing, your insurance will follow your plan and you may owe money if it was deemed part of your deductible, or not covered by insurance.
