The Refraction Charge
Refraction is the procedure in which we determine the best corrected visual acuity for each eye for the purposes of medical evaluations or for spectacles, contact lenses, or corrective surgery. For most insurances, including Medicare, there is no provision for coverage of this procedure, and there is no indication that it will likely become a covered service anytime in the near future.
Refraction is necessary to adequately determine visual function and is important in making sure that serious underlying eye problems do not exist. We perform refractions as a part of all of our comprehensive eye evaluations.
We trust that you will understand the need to perform this procedure and we respectfully ask for payment at the time of service.
NOTE: Our refraction fee is currently $45. The fee may not be covered by your plan. In that case, you will be responsible for this fee whenever the doctor checks your eyes for glasses.
I am stating I have read this form (or it has been read to me) and I fully understand that I will be responsible for all the charges relating to the refraction portion of the exam.
Some vision plans may cover the 'refraction fee', but most do not.
