We accept most PPO insurance and Medicare assignments, but please check with your insurance company to verify if we are a participating provider for your plan.

Not all medical plans cover routine vision exams (when patients have no eye complaints or when no known eye condition exists). You may have a separate vision plan that covers routine or annual eye examinations and/or glasses. We currently do not accept any vision plans. Please check with your insurance carrier regarding coverage for routine eye care.

Medicare

We are a participating provider under Medicare. We will file all claims to Medicare with a valid signature on file. We accept the reimbursements set by Medicare for medical and surgical services covered by the Medicare program, including surgery. If you have Medicare, you will be responsible only for co-payments, deductibles and non-covered services. Routine eye exams and refractions are not covered by Medicare and payment is requested at the time of service.

Medicare Refraction Policy

Refraction is a measurement of the lens power necessary to prescribe glasses or other corrective lenses. Most medical insurance plans, including Medicare, do not cover refractions or routine eye examinations. Medicare allows us to charge patients separately for the refraction portion of the examination, since it is not a covered service.

Optical Goods/Contact Lenses

For any cost that is not covered by your plan, payment in full is expected at the time of ordering contact lenses, contact lens supplies, and for eyewear frames and optical accessories.
Contact lens evaluation and contact lenses are not usually covered by medical plans. Please check with your carrier.
