DEDICATED TO SERVING YOUR EYE CARE NEEDS AT TWO LOCATIONS (OAKLAND & LAFAYETTE)
We want to provide you with affordable, high-quality treatment that fits your budget! Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs. Our office accepts payments by cash, checks, and Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards.
Under Original Medicare, if the Part B deductible ($203 in 2021) applies, you must pay all costs (up to the Medicare-approved amount) until you meet the yearly Part B deductible.
Visit Medicare.gov to get the 2021 Part B deductible.
After you meet your deductible, Medicare begins to pay its share and you (or your secondary insurance) typically pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount of the service (if the doctor or other health care provider accepts assignment). There’s no yearly limit on what you pay out-of-pocket. There may be limits on supplemental coverage you may have, like Medigap, Medicaid, or employer or union coverage. You pay nothing for most covered preventive services if you get the services from a doctor or other qualified health care provider who accepts assignment. However, for some preventive services, you may have to pay a deductible, coinsurance, or both. These costs may also apply if you get a preventive service in the same visit as a non-preventive service.
Our office staff will be glad to assist you with your insurance coverage. When you first visit our office, bring your current insurance card with you. If you change insurance companies or join another employer’s plan, please be sure to let our insurance department know. If an insurance referral is necessary, please bring the completed form with you to your appointment.
We will submit all insurance claims for you. We will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits; however, you are personally responsible for your account, and we encourage you to contact us if your policy has not paid within 45 days. If we are not contracted under your insurance, you will be given a copy of services and charges to file with your insurance claim form.
The only medical groups that we are contracted with are Hills Physicians Medical Group and Affinity. We are a preferred provider for the following insurance companies and plans:
Please verify that we are included on your plan’s list of approved providers when making your appointment. Please be prepared to provide us your insurance details at the time of your call and visit.

We are pleased to offer CareCredit Healthcare financing options with low monthly payments that make your treatment more affordable. This flexible payment option allows you to pay for your treatment over a period of time so you can focus on what matters most – staying healthy!
