When you schedule your appointment, we will ask for your insurance information and verify whether or not you have coverage for a routine eye exam before your appointment. However, verification of benefits is NOT a guarantee of payment from your insurance company. You may receive a bill for services not covered by your insurance company.
Below is most of the information you will need before your first appointment. If there's anything else we can help you with please feel free to call us!
Checklist for your first appointment:
Insurance card - if you are using any type of insurance, please remember to bring your card(s). Some vision insurance companies may not provide a card, if they don't, your regular medical insurance card is fine. We will also need a photo ID of the insured or a parent/guardian.
Current glasses and/or contact lens boxes if you are currently wearing contact lenses.
Current medication information - if you have a list, we would be happy to copy that for you at our office.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon!
