At Fishman & Sheridan Eyecare Specialists, our goal is promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of medical insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our Leesburg patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.
The knowledgeable staff at Fishman & Sheridan Eyecare Specialists is experienced in working with medical insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your medical insurer to submit claims regarding your medical care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current medical plans are designed to cover many of the basic vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.
Contact our office at (352) 360-2301 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your medical coverage.
Flexible Spending Accounts
Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred to as cafeteria plans and are elective, supplemental insurance savings plans. These plans are designed to let you save money in an account, pre-tax, to pay for additional medical expenses such as eye exams, glasses, contacts, and often laser vision surgery. Check with the benefits administrator at your work to see if you are eligible for this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any medical insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
Other Payment Options
Our Leesburg ophthalmology staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating vision care providers. We do not want cost to be an obstacle to maintaining proper eye health and good vision. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Fishman & Sheridan Eyecare Specialists, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call (352) 360-2301 today to schedule your eye exam today.
No Surprises Act
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-877-696-6775.
