Fees & Insurance Co-payment, refraction fee and non-covered services are due at the time of your office visit. In an effort to minimize our billing expense, please be advised that you may incur an additional fee if these charges are not paid at the time of your visit.
We participate with many major insurance plans. However, due to ongoing insurance policy changes, it is no longer an easy task to monitor each individual policy. Although we make every effort to stay informed of policy changes, it is not always possible. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to understand your individual coverage. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to check with your insurance company prior to any office or hospital procedure.
Some medical insurance companies, as well as HMOs, require pre-authorization for medical services. Please consult with your insurance company or primary care physician to obtain a pre-authorization for services, if required, prior to your appointment date.
Please be advised that all costs incurred during your office visit that are not paid by your insurance company will be your responsibility to pay. Testing performed in the office is a completely separate charge from the physician charge. Testing charges include, but are not limited to, refractions, visual fields, and photos.
Please be advised that the majority of insurance companies do not cover refractions. The refraction is the testing completed to obtain an eyeglass prescription, or to determine if eyeglasses are needed. If you have questions or concerns regarding the need for a refraction, please address them with the technician at the beginning of your exam.
Prompt payment of your account will assist us in keeping costs down. Accounts not paid in a timely fashion will be assessed a $25 collection fee.
