The cost of healthcare can be intimidating, even if you have insurance. Whether you do not have medical insurance, or are choosing an elective treatment, we want to help make the financial aspect of your treatment as comfortable as possible. At the end of the day, we want our patients without insurance to get the care they need, and for all our patients to achieve their visual or aesthetic goals. Our procedures are competitively priced, and the fees for the majority of pre-op and post-op visits are included in our costs.
To help make these options more affordable, we offer financing plans through CareCredit. They have several convenient payment plans, including 0% interest for up to 2 years. You can inquire online through the link below:
One great way to cover the expense of an elective procedure like Laser Cataract or LASIK is to use a flexible spending plan (FSA) or a health savings account (HSA). Many employers offer FSAs or HSAs which will allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars for healthcare-related expenses. Depending upon your income and tax bracket, this could save you as much as $2,000. Contributions to these plans are made through automatic and regular deductions from your paychecks. Since the funds placed in the account are not taxed, they go much further in covering eligible medical expenses. Some procedures like blepharoplasty or BoTox are classified as cosmetic rather than elective, and so FSAs and HSAs cannot be used for those purposes. For more information on these types of plans, consult with your health insurance benefits administrator.
Laser Cataract surgery with Premium lens implants, and Advanced Vision Correction procedures like Custom LASIK and Visian ICL are not inexpensive, but make a lot of financial sense. If you consider the cost of 10 years of purchasing contact lenses or glasses (including lens fitting and replacements), these procedures can actually be less expensive.
