Medical Eye Examinations
A medical eye examination is for the following: Cataracts, Glaucoma, Diabetes, Dry Eyes, Allergies, Flashes/Floaters, et. al. Your medical insurance will generally cover these exams.
A refraction is the test that is performed during your office visit to determine your best possible vision. A refraction may also be required to determine the health of your eyes. We will bill your insurance, however most insurances do not cover this charge. You will be responsible for any amount not covered by your insurance.
We will bill your Medical Insurance as a courtesy to you. Your insurance will determine what amount they will pay toward your bill. Your Medical Insurance card must be on file. If we are unable to verify your eligibility for benefits, you will need to pay in full at the time of service or your exam may be rescheduled. It is your responsibility to know if your insurance requires a referral and/or preauthorization and any *deductible, *copayment, and /or *coinsurance that are due. Please make sure our doctor is in-network with your insurance and that the services you will be having here at Bonner Eye Clinic are covered under your plan.
