Medicare and Cataract Surgery
If you have Medicare, it will help cover much of the cost for your cataract eye surgery. Cataract surgery is an out-patient procedure, which is covered under Medicare Part B. That means when you have your cataract surgery performed, Medicare will cover 80 percent of the cost of the procedure. You will be responsible for any co-pay and deductible as determined by your insurance.
A standard, single-focus lens implant will generally be covered by insurance. If you choose a presbyopic lens implant (for fuller range vision after surgery), or an astigmatism-correcting lens implant (which corrects the cataract and the out-of-round condition of your eye), you will be responsible for the additional cost associated with that lens implant. We will discuss these fees with you during your evaluation.
Private Medical Insurance and Cataract Surgery
If you have a private insurance plan, we expect that your health care service plan will pay for cataract surgery, less any deductible or co-pay requirements. Your insurance will cover a traditional monofocal lens implant. If you choose a presbyopic lens implant (for fuller range vision after surgery), or an astigmatism-correcting lens implant (which corrects the cataract and the out-of-round condition of your eye), you will be responsible for the additional cost associated with that lens implant, as outlined above. We will discuss these fees with you during your evaluation.
Flexible Payment Options
We offer flexible payment options through CareCredit, including plans that are interest-free for up to 12 months. You don’t want to live with compromised vision, and you don’t have to. Find an extended payment option that works for you.
