We participate with Medicare, Blue Shield, most HMO's, and many commercial insurances. Co- payments and deductibles, as well as charges for refraction and other non-covered services will be collected at the time of the office visit. Payments may be made in cash, personal check, Master Card, Visa or Discover.

Our staff would be happy to submit a claim on your behalf for eye care services. Be sure to bring your insurance information along when you visit. If you do not have your insurance card or referral you may reschedule the appointment until such information is received or you may pay for the visit in full at the time of service.  

Refraction Fee Notice for Patients

As of November 9th 2020

There are two parts to your eye examination, which are billed separately.

The first charge includes the fee for the doctor to evaluate the health of your eyes. This charge is billable to your insurance company, and also to Medicare.

The second (vision) portion of your exam is called a “refraction,” which is a test performed to determine the best corrective lenses to be prescribed for each eye.

Although a refraction is a very important vision test, it is considered a non-medical procedure. Medicare and most insurance plans do not pay for this service, the fee of which is now $50.00.

We request that payment for this service be made at the time of your visit. Thank you.
