It is important that you contact your insurance company prior to receiving services at Ocean Regional Eye Surgery Center. Each plan is different and provide varying levels of coverage which could make a difference in your out-of-pocket expenses. It is always best to contact your insurance company to obtain more information if you have any questions.

As all insurance plans are different, it is your surgeon’s responsibility to verify if your plan requires a pre-authorization for the procedure(s) you are having performed and obtain one when required. Furthermore, Ocean Regional Eye and your surgeon are two separate providers and may or may not participate in the same insurances. It is your responsibility to verify insurance participation.

Prior to your surgery, we will contact your insurance carrier for verification of your insurance eligibility and benefits. We will advise you of any and all financial responsibilities in advance of your surgery to ensure your complete understanding. All required co-pays, outstanding deductibles, and coinsurances will be collected on the day of surgery. If your insurance plan requires a referral, it is your obligation to obtain this for your services. For your convenience, we accept cash, credit cards, checks, and money orders.
