In general, artificial eyes are covered by Insurance and most plans do not consider them to be a cosmetic device. Since Alamance Eye Prosthetics Inc. is not a provider with most insurance, it is the patient’s responsibility to get the required information to our staff for the purpose of researching coverage and benefits prior to your appointment. Once the prosthetic is made, we file your insurance claim for you.
Alamance Eye Prosthetics, Inc. does not automatically accept assignment on Medicare patients.
Medicare covers prosthetic eyes and related services. Before the fitting of your prosthesis, a letter of medical necessity is required from your referring doctors. This referral can be in the form of a written prescription or a letter requesting the service. If you have an HMO Medicare policy, you will need to have your Primary Care Physician request an OUT-OF–NETWORK referral to our office for the service requested. The authorization needs to be completed and in the provider’s office before work begins. If your physician has any question regarding this referral, please have them call our office at 336-228-1403. Or email us at aepi@att. net
Medicare pays 80% of their allowed charges and your supplement (if you have one) will pay the remaining 20% of Medicare’s allowed charges. On a non-assignment claim, the Patient is responsible for all charges and fees.
If you have any questions regarding this information, please call our office at 336-228-1403 and we will be happy to answer and assist you any way we can.
