Our physicians are participating providers with Medicare. We will submit a claim for your services to Medicare. You will be responsible for payment of any deductible, copayment, 20% of current charges and non-covered charges and non-covered services (i.e. refraction). As a courtesy to our surgical patients, we submit a claim to your secondary insurance as well. We participate in most insurance and preferred providers plans.
Please remember that insurance is a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the doctor and is not a substitute for payment. Some companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures and others pay a percentage of the charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance, or any balance not paid by your insurance company.
When questions on insurance matters arise, please feel free to discuss them with our insurance and billing administrator. We are happy to assist our patients in any way; however, the agreement by the insurance company to pay for your medical care is a contract between you and your insurance company.
