Bill Pay and Insurance

Paying for Your Eye Care

Compared to many health care services, the billing process for eye care is among the easiest to understand. Yet some procedures, medications and prescription eyewear are handled differently by insurance providers, including Medicare. At Sabates Eye Centers, you will always know our fees upfront, as well as an estimate of whatever out-of-pocket expenses you might expect.

Insurance Accuracy

When you schedule an appointment, we’ll ask for basic personal and insurance information that helps us determine coverage eligibility and, whenever possible, minimize your out-of-pocket costs. The information is transmitted directly, securely and electronically between your carrier and Sabates Eye Centers.

Insurance Providers

We have an extensive list of accepted medical and vision insurance plans. We’ll work with you to identify all insurance benefits prior to your visit. Our billing department is always available to help with any questions you may have. Please call us at 913-261-2020 with any questions during normal business hours.

When to Pay

We ask that you provide payment for any copays and services not covered by insurance at the time of your visit. If there is a balance that differs from estimates made earlier, you will be billed after the insurance claim information is processed.

Accepted Payment Methods

Sabates Eye Centers accepts cash, personal checks, debit cards, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

You can pay online here, or by using the Bill Pay form on this page.

Eye Surgery Financing Options

Some procedures, such as cataract surgery, are covered by Medicare and other insurance providers. Others, like laser vision correction, are not. Because fees for services that are not covered are due at the time they are performed, many patients choose to spread out the payments over time.

A number of financing options are available. One of our laser vision coordinators will gladly go over all the details with you at the time of your consultation. We have teamed up with Care Credit to offer financing options with those with approved credit for LenSx procedures.
