HMO and Other Plans That Require PCP Referrals:

Please remember, if your insurance plan requires a referral authorization, it is your responsibility to ensure you bring a current referral from your primary care physician. Most doctors require 48 hours notice to generate a referral.


Your co-pay will be requested at the time of your service. Payment may be made by check, cash, MasterCard or Visa. We also take American Express and CareCredit.  We will file an insurance claim for services. Remember that deductibles may vary depending upon your insurance plan.

Important Surgical Financial Information:

You will have three separate charges and three separate insurance claims filed from your procedure. You will also have an office visit charge and charges for lens implant measurements. You may have deductible, copay or co-insurance amounts due after your insurance clears. This does NOT include premium lens charges.

Deductibles and co-insurances are due prior to surgery. We will contact your insurance company to determine these amounts. Please remember that this is an estimate based on the information received from your insurance company and is not a guarantee of payment. You are ultimately responsible for any allowed amounts not paid by your insurance.
