Financing & Payment Options

Patients at Columbus Ophthalmology Associates can feel confident that they are receiving the highest quality of eye care and vision care. We believe that every patient should have access to this level of care, regardless of their income. However, we realize that some of the treatments and services we provide may not be covered by our patients’ insurance plans. To help our patients fit out-of-pocket costs into their budgets, we offer a number of payment and financing options.

Fees and Payment Policy

At the time of your appointment, we will collect any necessary co-payments. Please reschedule your visit if you are unable to make your co-payment. For visits deemed medically necessary by a physician, a $15 Co-Pay Service Charge will be incurred.

Medical Insurance Accepted

We work with a large number of medical insurance companies including Medicare and Medicaid. Coverage will vary by insurance provider and individual insurance plan, so coverage, co-insurance, and out-of-pocket costs will vary by each individual and their treatment needs. Contact your insurance provider to determine our office’s participation.

Is My Treatment Covered by Insurance?

Procedures that are deemed not medically necessary, or elective, are rarely eligible for insurance coverage. However, our patients who incur out-of-pocket costs still have options. We accept funds from FSA, HRA, and HSA accounts, and we also work with CareCredit®, a trusted medical lender.

Medical Financing Options

With CareCredit®, our patients are able to select the payment plan that works best for them. Many CareCredit plans offer no up-front costs, a range of monthly payment options, no annual fees, and no prepayment penalties.

What Can I Finance?

Our patients can use CareCredit to finance any and all eye care and vision services and treatments we provide. This includes:
