Clinic Financial Policy

This information has been prepared for you benefit and reference. It contains our policies regarding insurance plans, billing and payment for our services.

Please read and initial each statement in the blank provided

The Kansas City Eye clinic will file claims for primary and secondary insurance plans on your behalf. Co-payments, charges for non-covered services and deductibles are due in full at time of service.

It is your responsibility(and the guardian of minors′ responsibility)to be aware of and follow your insurance plan guidelines and restrictions.You are responsible for obtaining a referral if your plan requires one. You are responsible for selecting a provider that participates with your insurance. The most up-to-date and comprehensive list of participating providers is available when you speak directly with your insurance plan; the Kansas City Eye Clinic cannot provide as up-to-date a list. You must use the information provided by your insurance company to determine if your doctor is a participating provider.

The Kansas City Eye Clinic does NOT file claims to automobile or liability insurance. Payment for all charges is due at the time of service. The patient will be provided with the information they need to file their own claim to the insurance company.

Kansas City Eye Clinic will follow-up on unpaid insurance claims. However, your insurance coverage is an agreement between you and your insurance plan and it is your responsibility to assure that services are paid. If your insurance coverage changes, delays or denials as a result of insurance information that is incomplete or not up-to-date will result in the payment for services and materials due directly from the patient.

Adult or teenage children who require examination, treatment, eyeglasses or lenses must have required insurance information and be prepared to pay any balance or fee not covered by insurance.

Routine vision plans will not cover exams when the patient has a vision or eye complaint or a medical diagnosis. These plans are generally for healthy eye exams and cannot be billed for care when there is a complaint or a medical diagnosis.

Most insurance companies consider a refraction to be a non-covered service. A refraction is the test used to determine the power and prescription of your eyeglass or contact lenses. You are responsible for payment of the refraction if your insurance does not cover it.

Your Social Security number is a required part of your financial information with the Kansas City Eye Clinic. This information, as with your medical record, is protected with strict confidentiality. When the Clinic does not receive full payment for all charges at the time of service, by definition, we extend credit to the patient, and consequently can appropriately ask for this information to be part of our records. Alternatively, all charges can be paid in full until insurance makes payment after which we will process a refund to the patient.

The Kansas City Eye Clinic will assess a charge for copies of medical records to cover the costs of processing the record. A patient will be provided 10 pages of their medical record at no charge. Additional or subsequent pages will be provided at 50 cents per page and a $10.oo processing fee per occurrence after appropriate authorizations have been made.
