Why does Colorado Eye Institute accept medical insurance?
Dr. Lee and Dr. Patel went to medical school to learn how to perform surgery on the eye. They specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of medical eye conditions, which (according to law) includes any diagnosis outside of farsightedness, nearsightedness, and dry eye.
Will my health insurance cover my visit?
This is dependent upon your plan benefits. Not all insurance policies carry vision benefits, even if you are being treated for a medical condition. It is always a good idea to check with your insurance company to see if you have vision benefits and what those entail.
If my insurance will not pay for my visit am I responsible for the visit?
In most cases, yes, the patient will be responsible for payment of the visit. If your insurance company deems any part of your visit your responsibility, it is Colorado Eye Insitute’s contractual obligation to collect this payment from you. It is also part of your contract with your insurance company to pay the required amount.
Am I responsible for my co payment at the time of the visit?
If your insurance company requires you to pay a copay, then it is our contractual obligation to collect this copay at the time of service, not after. If you are unable to pay your copay at your time of service, we will be happy to reschedule your appointment with no penalty to you.
What if I cannot afford to pay my balance in a 30 day period?
At Colorado Eye Institute, we understand that medical costs can be high. Therefore, we offer a three (3) month payment agreement to help fit your budget.
