Financial Responsibility: I authorize the release of medical and financial information for the purpose of collection of my account.
If my DOCTOR IS A PARTICIPATING PROVIDER with my insurance plan I authorize my insurance benefits to be paid directly to the
doctor and acknowledge that I am financially responsible for any unpaid balance. I agree to pay this balance in full.
If my DOCTOR IS NOT A PARTICIPATING PROVIDER with my insurance plan, I understand that I bear sole financial responsibility
for the payment of my account. As a courtesy to our patients claim forms will be submitted to nonparticipating insurance companies.
Because benefits from nonparticipating insurance companies are refunded directly to the patient, we require that the balance be paid
in full before we submit the claim forms.

Aetna, Anthem Blue Choice, Beech Street, Cigna, Coventry, Evercare, GHP, Healthlink, Healthnet, Humana, Medicare, Medicare Complete, Mercy Health Plans, MultiPlan, PHCS, Premier, Principal, Secure Horizons, Tricare/Champus, United Health Care

INSURED AGREEMENT: I am aware that my insurance carrier may require me to use participating providers and to follow plan
requirements, including primary care referral and precertification and that failure to comply could result in my sole responsibility to
pay any charges for services rendered.
SELF PAY AGREEMENT: I do not have any insurance coverage or if this service is not covered by my insurance earner, I agree to
be responsible for the full balance.
Payment is expected in full at the time services are rendered. Payment of one half is expected before eyeglasses or contacts will be ordered. Eyeglasses and contact lenses must be paid in full at the time of dispensing.
