Medical Insurance is considered the primary billing party if you have any eye problems/symptoms or eye disease, new or established, or if you have any medical conditions, such as diabetes, or are undergoing medical treatment, such as high risk medications, that are known to cause eye problems, that require evaluation and management. Medical insurance is also primary for any procedure(s) deemed medically necessary by the doctor to manage and treat current eye disease. The patient or guarantor is responsible for the specialist co-pay and any co-insurance and/or deductible the patient’s medical insurance requires. We do not inquire about the aforementioned financial agreement between the insured party and insurance company; it is the responsibility of the insured party to be familiar with their contract.
Vision Benefit Plans may be utilized for basic ocular-vision wellness exams, which include screening tests for ocular disease and refraction. The primary purpose of a vision benefit examination is to measure your current visual status. Medical eye health concerns will be addressed initially, if indicated, and a wellness exam may need to be rescheduled to coordinate benefits.
