Insurance & Billing Information
The policy of our office is to collect any co-pay, co-insurance and non-covered fees at the time of service.
Non-covered procedures may include, but are not limited to, refractions. A refraction may be performed to verify whether or not your vision can be improved with a new prescription or whether surgery is indicated for your medical condition. A refraction is considered routine by Medicare as well as most other insurance plans, therefore, it is your responsibility to pay this fee when performed.
As a courtesy to our patients, we will bill all primary insurance coverage if we are a participating provider. If we are not a contracted provider, payment will be expected at the time of service.
Our office participates with most major insurances. We accept Medicare assignment. Please call (623) 878-3939 to find out if we participate with your insurance.
Please bring your insurance card with you along with your photo identification. It is very important for you to bring your current insurance card each visit and to inform us if there has been any change in your coverage or in your address. As changes may occur in the plans that we accept, please verify our acceptance at the time you make an appointment.
We will make every effort to verify your coverage prior to your appointment, yet we cannot guarantee coverage of services by your insurance company. To determine your insurance benefits and eligibility please contact your insurance carrier directly. Note that you are ultimately responsible for payment for all services that are not covered by your insurance plan.
