We are participating providers for Medicare, Medicaid, and most managed care plans. Many insurance companies and HMO’s require that you obtain written authorization from your primary care physician before any office visit, diagnostic procedure, or intervention. Please check with your insurance provider or contact our office for assistance with these issues before your appointment.
Although the treatment of retinal diseases may involve significant technology and complicated services, we attempt to minimize the cost in several ways:
- We perform our surgery on an outpatient basis, thus reducing the length of the hospital stay.
- By doing special testing, lasers, and minor surgical procedures in our office, we are able to eliminate “facility fees.”
- We have our own quality-assessment programs which monitor the effectiveness and results of our surgical and laser procedures. We are constantly updating and reviewing our techniques to ensure the best possible, most cost-effective surgical and medical outcomes.
We accept patients who do not have insurance and are "self-pay". Each treatment plan is unique, patients who are self-pay can inquire about pricing by contacting our office at 713-524-3434.
