Health Insurance and Payment Plans
Please see the list of health insurance plans with whom we are contracted at the bottom of this page.
Clemson Eye is a contracted provider for a large number of health plans including Medicare, Medicaid, BCBS, VSP, EyeMed, United, Aetna and many more.
If we are contracted with your plan, then we will file your insurance to cover your eye exam or treatment and you will be responsible for the difference. We gladly file primary and secondary insurance, but do not file tertiary (you may do so). The Medicare Part B deductible for 2016 is $166 and you typically pay 20% of the Medicare approved amount for most doctor services. If you have a secondary, then it generally pays the 20% subject to any other deductibles the secondary may include. If you have Medicare Part C or D, then the monthly premium varies by plan. Early in the year, many patients will have some financial responsibility to their provider until their deductibles are met. Along with copays, deductibles, and co-insurance, the "out-of-pocket" costs are increasing. Consider using a Flex Spending or Health Savings Account to cover your costs.
