Here’s What You’ll Need for Your First Visit
You will be asked to complete our registration and health history forms during your first visit. In order for us to best meet your needs, it is important for us to know about all medications you are taking and about any allergies you may have. Previous medical records concerning your eye health are also helpful. Please bring your insurance cards so that we can make copies of them for your medical record. Also, remember to bring your eyeglasses to each appointment.
We Are Actively Involved in Patient Education
Proper eye care and early detection can prevent many eye conditions and protect your vision. We continually advise our patients on topics related to eye care and treatment of eye disorders through office newsletters, brochures and literature, private lectures for local clubs and organizations, and complimentary community seminars and eye screenings.
About Your Insurance
We accept Medicare assignment on office examinations and procedures and reduce our fees to the Medicare allowable. Of this amount, Medicare pays 80% and the patient is responsible for the 20% co-payment, plus any deductible not met for the year.
There are two types of health insurance that will help pay for your eye care services and products: Vision Care Plans (such as VSP, VCP, Davis, and EyeMed) and Medical Insurance (such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Medicare). We will bill your insurance plan for services if we are a participating provider for that plan. Please check which plan(s) you have.
Your VISION INSURANCE is intended to provide you with coverage for routine vision exams, along with eyeglasses and contact lenses. Vision plans only cover a basic screening for eye disease and do not cover diagnosis, management or treatment of eye diseases.
If you are being evaluated for medical reasons or medical concerns including, but not limited to: corneal disorders such as dry eyes, diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma/glaucoma suspect, double vision, etc, this will be billed to your MEDICAL INSURANCE. Your doctor will determine if these conditions apply to you, but some are determined by your case history.
Please understand that each patient’s insurance coverage varies and Frantz EyeCare cannot be held responsible for knowing every patient’s coverage or type of insurance. It is your responsibility to provide us with your current insurance coverage BEFORE your examination, so that we may try to obtain advanced authorization, if necessary, and tell you what is covered under your insurance benefits. If some fees are not paid by your plan, we will bill you for any unpaid deductibles, co-pays or non-covered services as allowed by the insurance contract.
Convenient Appointments and Emergency Care
We have convenient office locations in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, Lehigh Acres, and Naples. Office appointments are available Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
If you have an emergency on weekends and holidays, please call our office and follow the instructions for contacting the doctor on call on the voice mail message. The doctor will contact you as soon as possible to make arrangements for emergency treatment if necessary. If you experience trauma to the eye or to the area surrounding the eye, or if you believe you have an extreme eye emergency, go to the nearest hospital emergency room.
