At First Eye Care, we value your time. In an effort to save you time in our office, we have drastically reduced the amount of paperwork you need to fill out prior to your exam. There is no need to fill out paperwork online before you come. When you arrive, you will be asked to sign a HIPAA form similar to the form you sign at all doctor’s offices. You will also be given basic information regarding Medical visits versus Wellness visits.
We work with most of the major insurance companies. However, there are so many different companies and so many different plans within each company that it is difficult to know all of the allowed fees. Prior to an examination we recommend that you review your benefits with a representative from your insurance company. We do not accept any HMO plans. We are ready to help in any way we can.
The knowledgeable staff at First Eye Care is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current vision plans are designed to cover many of the basic vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.
Contact our office at (972) 612-2015 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.
Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred o as cafeteria plans and are elective, supplemental insurance savings plans. These plans are designed to let you save money in an account, pre-tax, to pay for additional medical expenses such as eye exams, glasses, contacts, and often laser vision surgery. Check with the benefits administrator at your work to see if you are eligible for this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
Our Plano optometry staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating vision care providers. We do not want cost to be an obstacle to maintaining proper eye health and good vision. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At First Eye Care, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call (972) 612-2015 today to schedule your eye exam today.
