Because insurance claim filing is complex, Midwest Eye Care will file insurance claims for all patients as long as we are provided with complete billing information. This information is typically included on an insurance identification card, and we will copy that card at the registration desk. We will not file claims for routine coverage if we do not participate in the routine vision plan.
There are some instances, however, when we know in advance that the insurance company will not pay the claim, and thus we will ask for payment at or prior to the time of the service. Examples of these services include refractive surgery, deductible amounts for covered surgery, routine exams, refraction fees and all optical purchases.
