The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as medical insurance. Regular medical 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.
Insurance and Billing:
As a courtesy to you, our patients, we will bill your insurance company for your services. You are responsible for providing us with up-to-date insurance information. If your insurance company requires referrals, advance notification is required for visits that are not an emergency. We accept payment from all participating insurance plans though may require that you pay your copay at the time of service. You will be responsible for any deductibles, coinsurance and non-covered services. If you do not have insurance, payment for services is expected at the time of service. Most major credit cards are accepted for payment. The office policy is that the parent requesting treatment for a minor is responsible for all fees incurred. We cannot become involved in billing disputes in cases involving divorce or separation.
Insurance policies have become increasingly complex over the years (currently, there are over 200 plans with multiple levels of service coverage in each plan). It has become impossible for our office to know each specific plan and their limitations. Therefore, it is your responsibility to know your insurance benefits. Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. We attempt to verify our patient’s information before or at the time of service, however a disclaimer is read at the time of all verifications by the insurance companies that the information may not be accurate and is subject to review by your insurance company before authorizing and processing claims. You are strongly encouraged to make sure your insurance coverage is up to date and valid prior to your appointment. You may be billed in the event that your insurance plan does not pay in a timely manner or is unresponsive to our claims submission. All fees are ultimately your responsibility.
In the event that a check is returned to us by your bank for any reason, there will be a $25.00 service charge.
All patient accounts that become delinquent will be processed in-house for collection proceedings. A past due and final collection notice will be sent for overdue accounts. The account will then be reviewed for referral to an outside agency. All accounts turned over to a collection agency will be assessed a 25% administrative fee.
Financial hardship should not stand in the way of medical care. Please discuss hardship with the billing staff as soon as possible.
