  • Billing and Financial Policy

    PLEASE READ AND SIGN BELOW:

    FINANCIAL POLICY: The following is a statement of our financial policy.

    1. Patient Information: All patients must complete all of our Patient Information sheets and this form before seeing the doctor. Unless previous arrangements have been made, all payments are due at the time of the appointment. Payment can be made with cash, check, Visa, or Mastercard. We will only bill insurance carriers with whom we participate (have a signed agreement with).

    2. Participating Managed Care Insurance: You are responsible to supply our staff with your primary and/or secondary insurance ID card(s) at the time of your appointment. If your insurance company requires a referral from your primary doctor, you must also present this to our receptionist prior to being seen, as we cannot bill your insurance without it. If you do not obtain a referral when your insurance requires one, you will be required to pay for the visit in full. If your insurance requires a copay, it must be paid at the time of the appointment. At times, your insurance carrier will deny payment for authorized services. If so, you may be asked to help resolve these issues with your carrier. If you have a deductible, you will be responsible for paying the full amount of the deductible as it pertains to your visit.

    3. Non-Participating Insurances: If we do not participate with your insurance, the bill is your responsibility and is due at the time of service. Payment can be made with cash, check, Visa, or Mastercard.

    4. Medicare: We participate with Medicare. We will submit your claim to Medicare. The 20% difference between what Medicare “allows” and what Medicare “pays” will be sent to your secondary insurance if you have one, or to you. You are also responsible for the payment of your yearly deductible.

    5.Returned checks: A Fee of $25.00 will be added to your bill if this occurs.

    6. Cancellations: If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, 24 hours notice of cancellation is required. Otherwise a $25 fee will be made for the time that was reserved for you.

    7. Collections: Any outstanding balance for which the patient is responsible is due within 30 days. For every 30 days an account is overdue, a late fee of $15 will added to the account. For accounts that go unpaid past 90 days, late fees will cease and the balance will be sent immediately to collections with a 25% charge.

    Thank you for your cooperation in understanding our financial policy. I have read the above Mack Eye Center financial policy and I understand and agree to abide by its terms.

  • REFRACTION AND CONTACT LENS FITTING POLICY

    REFRACTION POLICY:

    During your visit, a refraction may be performed to determine your need for glasses or to evaluate if any further visual improvement can be achieved. This is a necessary and essential portion of your eye exam and in some cases it is the sole reason for the appointment.

    However, the refraction is considered a NONCOVERED service by Medicare and many Commercial Insurance plans.

    Our office collects the $40 refraction at the time of service.

    If your primary or secondary insurance pays us for the refraction, we will CREDIT your account. This will be determined when we receive the Explanation of Benefits.

    CONTACT LENS POLICY: The glasses prescription you receive from the Mack Eye Center is NOT a contact lens prescription.
    The doctor must examine and fit you with the contact lenses on your eye(s).
    A refraction is necessary prior to a contact lens evaluation.
    All Soft Contact Lens examination patients will receive a new bottle of approved Contact Lens Multipurpose solution and new case.

    There is a fee for this service, even if you are an established contact lens wearer. Similarly to the refraction policy, the fitting fee is due at the time of service as below. After your contact lens fitting is completed and services incurred are paid for, you will be able to order contact lenses through the Mack Eye Center or be provided with a copy of your contact lens specification.

    Established Contact Lens Exam $40
    Established Astigmatism Exam $75
    Established Multifocal Exam $95
    NEW Contact Lens Wearer with 1 Hour Training $130
    NEW Astigmatism Contact Lens Wearer with 1 Hour Training $200
    NEW Multifocal Contact Lens Wearer with 1 Hour Training $245
    NEW RGP / Hard Contact Lens Wearer $600
    Established RGP / Hard Contact Lens Wearer $105
