Insurance Information

We want your experience with Eye Consultants to be positive, and we are happy to assist you with any insurance questions that you may have. Some of the more common questions and answers are listed below:

Insurance/Payment Policy

Your insurance will be accepted according to the benefits of your policy. Necessary information must be obtained during your pre-registration call, so please have the information handy.

If you do not have insurance, payment in full is due the date of service. For your convenience, we accept Visa, Master Card, and Discover, as well as cash and checks for co-payments.

As a courtesy to our patients we will file insurance claims for all insurance plans in which we participate. We are happy to file for your insurance as long as you provide us with complete information. It is important that you keep in mind, we do not work for your insurance company, we work for you and this means that you are ultimately responsible for payment. Any charges not covered by your insurance, are due and payable at the time of service, unless other arrangements have been made ahead of time. You may be responsible for any co-payments and deductible amounts or any non-covered services. Any balance not covered by insurance is the patient's responsibility.

Many medical insurance companies, as well as HMOs, require pre-authorization for medical services. If your insurance requires you to pre-certify, pre-authorize or get a second opinion, you must do this prior to your exam date. Please consult with your insurance company or primary care physician to obtain a pre-authorization, if required.
