To Our Patients
We are here to provide you with the eye care
you need. We have established fees and payment policies that enable us to have the quality staff and facilities that are necessary to provide the care you expect. This explanation of our payment policies has been prepared so that you can help us maintain quality services. Our payment policies are designed to enable us to reduce unnecessary collection cost which would otherwise increase the cost to our patients. We know that insurance costs are confusing to everyone. However, by understanding your insurance plan and our policies, you will avoid surprises regarding payment.
Your Responsibility for Charges
You are ultimately responsible for the payment of services you receive. We rely on the accuracy of information you provide to determine if a third party will be responsible for payment. If you will be paying for services, or if you are responsible for a deductible or co-payment, we expect payment at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, personal checks, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Care Credit.
If payment is to be made through an insurance or medical plan that we have an agreed assignment with, then you are responsible for complying with all procedures required by that plan to enable us to receive payment on your behalf. To assure your insurance benefits, we may ask to confirm information and check eligibility prior to appointment date.
You are responsible for payment of any non-covered services by your insurance plans. If a patient is put on collection for non-payment, there is an additional collection fee of $20.00. We also charge a returned check fee of $25.00.
