Before Your Visit
As a service to our patients, our physicians participate with most major insurance plans and we gladly accept Medicare assignment. For the convenience of our patients, we are pleased to file insurance on your behalf directly to most major insurance carriers.
Please note that insurance is a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the doctor and is not considered a substitute for payment. It remains your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, coinsurance, non-covered services or any other balance unpaid by your insurance company.
In order for us to file claims on your behalf, we must receive a current copy of your insurance card. You are also responsible for securing required referrals or authorization forms from your primary care provider; it is also necessary for you to inform us prior to your examination if you participate in any vision plans.
If you have any questions about your insurance and which insurance plans we accept, please feel free to call.
