Insurance Plan Participation
It is the patient’s responsibility to be aware of their insurance coverage, policy provisions and authorization requirements. Not all providers participate with all insurances; please verify whether Boerne Vision Center accepts your insurance coverage when scheduling an appointment. We bill non-participating insurance companies as a courtesy to you. Any outstanding balances are the responsibility of the patient. All co-payments and past due balances are due and payable at the time of service. 

Medicare
We are “participating physicians”. This means that we must accept Medicare’s allowed charge for services rendered. Medicare will pay 80% of the approved amount. The patient is responsible for the remaining 20% plus any out of pocket deductible. If you have secondary insurance, we will submit the claim for the remaining balance after Medicare has paid. Please remember that the patient, by federal law, must be held responsible for any portion of the approved amount not paid by Medicare or a secondary insurance company.

Referrals
It is the patient’s responsibility to know if a referral is required by the patient’s insurance carrier. If a referral is required, the patient is responsible for obtaining the referral prior to the time of the visit. If the referral is not obtained, the patient’s appointment will be rescheduled.
