It is customary to pay for professional services when rendered. However, if you have a medical problem then we will bill your insurance on your behalf. A refraction is a measurement of the lens power necessary to prescribe glasses or other corrective lenses. Most medical insurance plans, including Medicare, do not cover routine refractions or routine eye exams (when no medical eye problem is known or suspected). Medicare, and most other insurance plans, insists that we charge separately for that portion of the examination, since it is not a covered service. You will receive an explanation of benefits from them itemizing your responsibilities. You will be responsible for any co-payments, deductibles or non-covered services as determined by your insurance company.
If you have a separate plan that covers routine or annual eye examinations and/or glasses, please let us know. Your vision plan may assist you with your eye care needs that are not covered by your medical plan. We will bill your vision plan as above.
