At Dr. Mark's Eyecare, our goal is to promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of vision insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our Fort Smith 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 Dr. Mark's Eyecare is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current vision plans are designed to cover most 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 479-452-0928 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision 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 vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.
We accept a wide variety of medical insurance including Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Humana, Aetna, and United Health Care to name just a few. Medical insurance can be billed for your exam for medically related exams such as annual diabetic eye exams, glaucoma exams, vision problems related to cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eye,and all types of eye related emergencies such as eye pain, eye infections (pink eye or styes), foreign body removals from the eye. This are just a few of the many situations for which medical insurance can be billed for your visit.
Other Payment Options
Our Fort Smith optometry 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 Dr. Mark's Eyecare, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards.
