At Jeffries Eye Associates, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept most types of insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We try to inform our patients about exam and treatment costs.
Our knowledgeable staff is experienced in working with insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your insurer to submit claims regarding your medical eye care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many plans are designed to cover most of the basic costs, but not all costs associated with medical eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment or co-insurance amount for an office appointment as well as additional costs (deductibles and out of pocket amounts) that are the responsibility of the patient.
We do not participate with any vision plans. We will be happy to supply you with the copy of a fee ticket to submit to your vision plan for reimbursement.
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, testing and eye 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 insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
Other Payment Options
Our staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating medical eye 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 Jeffries Eye Associates, we also accept cash, check, most major credit cards (not American Express). Call (479) 631-8900 today to schedule your eye exam today.
Another financing alternative is through Care Credit which gives you flexibility and convenience when managing your family's out-of-pocket healthcare expenses.
