For Out-of-Network Patients
If we do not participate with your insurance carrier, you may want to ask your carrier if you have out-of-network benefits. We will provide a detailed receipt that can be submitted for out-of-network medical or vision benefits. Any deductible or portion due from the patient will be due at the time of service.
A refraction is the process of determining if there is a need for corrective eyeglasses. It is an essential part of an eye examination and necessary in order to write a prescription for glasses.
Most medical insurance plans, including Medicare, do NOT cover routine refractions or routine eye examinations.
If you have a vision plan that covers refractions, we will provide you with a receipt and you will receive an EOB (explanation of benefits) from your insurance provider by mail that you can provide your vision plan for out-of-network reimbursement.
Our office fee for refraction is $65.00 and this fee is collected at the time of service in addition to any co-payment your plan may require. Should your plan pay us for the refraction, we will reimburse you accordingly.
It is your responsibility to make certain that the appropriate referrals are in place PRIOR to your visit. We can usually tell you whether your insurance company requires a referral. Please take the time to confirm with us that all necessary referrals have been received ahead of time. If your referral is not in place at the time of your visit, this will delay your visit. Further, if it is not possible to obtain the referral while you are waiting at our office, you will have the choice of: a) paying out of pocket for the visit, or b) rescheduling your appointment.
Copayments or deductibles are collected at check out; self-pay patients are required to pay at the time of service. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
