Is the reason for your visit…
A healthy patient routine vision exam is done yearly to check for vision changes, to screen for eye disease and to make sure your eyeglass and contact lens Rx is up to date. This would include a refraction to measure your vision prescription, a dilated retinal exam and a variety of other tests. Your vision plan will be billed.
– OR –
If you are presenting to our office with a medical complaint, injury, infection, inflammation or chronic eye disease, we will file your eye examination to your medical insurance carrier. You will be responsible for applicable co-pays, deductibles and refraction. We can still check you for the need for glasses or contact lenses even though we are evaluating a medical problem.
A special note for patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, glaucoma or macular degeneration.
Medical plans, instead of vision plans, will be billed for patients in which our doctors are managing chronic medical problems such as
- diabetic patients who need a diabetic retinal examination.
- macular degeneration
- dry eye syndrome
You may still use your vision plans for eye glasses or contact lenses. Vision plans are not designed to cover examinations where a higher level of medical decision making is required.
