Medicare-cleaning and polishing

We only accept assignment for 'cleaning and polishing' your  eye prosthesis. You are allowed 2 appointments per year by Medicare .


Medicare-Non-Participating Provider

    for eye prosthesis

We are not able to accept assignment from "Medicare" for the eye prosthesis at the present time. We will be pleased to provide and file the information and receipts necessary for reimbursement of their allowable to you.  Medicare’s allowable fee for a new eye prosthesis is just to low to accept.



We will try to confirm your coverage for you if we have the proper information. 

 To find out what your insurance plan covers and what your financial obligation may be, call the customer service or member services department of your insurance company (the phone numbers are on your insurance card). Your employer's human resources department may also be a source of information and assistance.

 While you may have insurance coverage to pay your medical bills, you are ultimately responsible for all charges. You are responsible to notify us of your insurance and to provide the necessary information about your insurance plan.

 It is your responsibility to know your insurance company's patient responsibilities and procedures. If proper procedures are not followed, you may be liable for full payment of the bill. If your insurance company requires a referral and/or prior authorization, contact your primary care physician prior to your appointment.

 Benefit and coverage rules and policies differ among insurers and even between different plans of the same insurer. If you go to an out-of-network provider, your insurance company may only pay a percentage of the rates they determine are usual, customary, and reasonable (UCR) rates. It may be necessary to get a GAP Exception. You may be responsible for the full amount or the amount of charges over the insurer's UCR plus your usual deductible and co-payment.

 Please contact our office for more information concerning you personally.
