Our Approach to Insurance
At Ryczek Eye Associates, we strive to help everyone get the eye care and optometry services they need by accepting a wide range of health insurance plans and payment methods.
To make your visit as smooth as possible, please note that our optometry office is a fee-for-service practice, which means that all services must be paid for in full at the time of your visit, including co-pays. Depending on your insurance provider, your out-of-pocket payment portion will vary, so please be sure to find out if your insurance plan is accepted and what kind of services are covered prior to scheduling your appointment. Additionally, many insurance plans have limitations, and benefits that go unused in a calendar year are often forfeited, so make sure your coverage will be valid for the time period when your appointment is scheduled.
Insurance Health Plan Coverage
Insurance coverage can be tricky, which is why we want to help you ensure you have the appropriate coverage before your appointment. Ryczek Eye Associates accepts most major insurance plans, including Medicare, but there may be some instances where your insurance is not accepted or your plan may not cover specific services.
Please refer to the information below as reference, but do not hesitate to call to find out more about the insurance plans we accept.
