Payment and Financing
Planchard Eye & Laser Center accepts the following methods of payment:
- Personal Check
- American Express
- eMedical Financing Solutions(see eFinancing section below)
We accept most all medical insurance for services that are covered by insurance, including Tricare (military). We take Medicare assignment (which means we charge only what Medicare allows and the patient will owe only their co-pay and any remaining annual deductible if that has not been met).
Please bring your insurance card, a picture I.D., and a list of your current medications when you come for your visit.
Your initial consultation is free-of-charge. If you wear contact lenses, please bring your prescription to the consultation. If you wear glasses, please bring those.
Unfortunately, LASIK surgery is not covered by any medical insurance at this time. Full payment for the LASIK procedure is due the day of your Pre-Op Evaluation.
Patients having Cataract Surgery
Medicare covers your cataract surgery and the cost of a “standard” lens implant. If you choose to have a “premium” lens implant, such as ReSTOR, Toric, etc., you are responsible for the additional cost of the “premium” lens.
Payment of that additional cost is due the day of your Pre-Op Evaluation.
General Eye Care & all other procedures
The co-payment for an examination is always due the day of the exam. Your co-pay amount (if any) will be listed on your insurance card for “specialist”. If you have any questions about your co-pay, feel free to contact our office at (318) 212-7860.
