We will bill them as a service for you. As the Patient or Responsible Party, you are responsible for any balance if your insurance company refuses to pay for any reason.

If you decline to pay this fee at the time of your visit and the insurance company denies your claim, you will be charged the original $90. This does not apply to patients with VSP/Eyemed. I also understand that certain procedures such as the Optomap /Retinal Scan, Corneal Scan and Contact Lens Fitting are patient “elective” procedures and I will pay at the time of service the cost as it is not covered by insurance.
