We work with you to make payment and insurance processes simple. If you have any questions regarding your exam or billing, please be sure to ask any member of our staff.

Payment

At the conclusion of your visit to our office, the receptionist will visit with you regarding your charges. We will submit any appropriate charges to your insurance company. Your refraction fee is normally not covered by insurance plans and you will be asked to pay that as well as any co-pays at the conclusion of your exam. We accept:

  • Mastercard
  • Visa
  • Discover
  • Cash or Check

We will send you a Return Reminder for your next eye exam. Thank you for your confidence in Eye Physicians for your vision care.

Insurance

Please be sure to bring all insurance cards with you to your appointment. We will make copies of your cards for your file.

We will file your claim to your medical insurance if you have a medical diagnosis. The insurance payment will depend on your deductible and co-insurance. We will bill you for the amount that is due after the insurance company files your claim.

The refraction is the part of the eye exam where the doctor determines what prescription will be ground into your lenses or contact lenses. Insurance companies normally do not cover this portion of the exam and you will be asked to pay for that at the time of the exam.

If you have vision insurance coverage, please be aware that this insurance is for those patients who desire to have a routine eye exam to change their glasses or contact lenses. Please be sure to tell the receptionist if you have routine vision coverage. We are providers for some routine vision plans but not all plans. The plan that you have will determine the benefits that you receive on your exam and glasses. We can determine if the plan is one that we are providers however we strongly encourage you to check with your employer on the benefits covered. There are many different medical/vision companies and plans and we cannot possibly know what benefits might be paid in your situation. This is the patient’s responsibility.

Please note that vision insurance does not cover medical eye exams. If you have a medical issue, you will need to schedule another exam for the medical issue in order to use your vision insurance. Please be sure to visit with the technician regarding your desire to use your vision insurance.

If you have a medical issue then the exam should be covered by your medical insurance subject to co-pays and deductibles. Please check with your employer’s Human Resources Department if you are unsure of the coverage you have.

If you have no vision insurance, please visit with the Receptionists or Billing Department Staff. We offer a discount to help those patients who have no coverage. You will be required to pay for your exam the day of service to receive the discount.
