Second, even if you do all of the above, you still may need to pay money out of pocket. Some insurance contracts state that certain services, such as contact lens fittings, are not covered services. We do our best at C Fast Optometry to bill you in a timely manner, but please understand there can be several hiccups in the billing process that may result in significant delays.
Third, once you receive an EOB (Explanation of Benefits) from your insurance provider, you need to pay the amount due to C Fast Optometry. We still issue a bill, but sometimes due to lags in the insurance billing, you will receive that EOB weeks, and perhaps, months before we can bill you.
Is your insurance provider not on the list? Please refer to your benefits coordinator and your insurance provider before scheduling an appointment. Our staff is only capable of ESTIMATING your coverage. Remember, we offer several discounts, including same day pay for those who would rather bill their insurances directly.
Do you have two insurances?
If so, we can only bill for your eye exam if your primary insurance is on the list of accepted plans. Having two insurance plans often makes the process a little more complicated, so feel free to give Nikki a call at the office and she can let you know whether C Fast Optometry will be able to bill your insurance(s).
