Our Office Accepts Medicare Assignment
We accept the amount Medicare approves for your office charges. Medicare pays 80 percent of the amount they approve for each charge after your annual deductible is met. The patient is responsible for payment of the deductible and 20 percent if secondary insurance is not available
A refraction is a non-covered Medicare expense
A refraction is when the doctor checks to see if you need a new eyeglass prescription or a change in your current eyeglass prescription. This charge is not deemed medically necessary by Medicare and payment for the refraction is expected at the time of your visit. Your Medicare handbook provides additional information regarding non-covered expenses.
The annual Medicare deductible will be assessed from the first charges that Medicare receives each calendar year. The annual Medicare deductible is your expense.
If your Medicare deductible has not been met in full prior to your visit, we will collect the Medicare allowance for the services performed.
You will not be required to pay the medicare deductible if your secondary insurance covers your medicare deductible.
