Financing Your Eye Surgery

Vision insurance plans will often cover most – if not all – of the cost of eye surgery. Of course, different plans cover different expenses and it is always a good idea to check with your plan administrator before scheduling a surgical procedure. If you could benefit most from a procedure not fully covered by your plan, the San Diego retina specialists at our offices can discuss other payment options that will allow you to receive treatment without breaking the bank. To discuss your options right away, call our Chula Vista office at (619) 425-7755 or our El Centro office at (760) 352-7755. Our helpful staff will be happy to provide you with the information you need to begin planning your treatment.

Flexible Spending Accounts

One of the most popular options for financing eye surgery is the flexible spending account. If you have an FSA or HSA, your benefits will expire at the end of the year, taking all of the money you have put towards uncovered medical expenses with it. To avoid this loss, scheduling your procedure now is absolutely your best option. Please use our online contact form or call one of our San Diego area offices to schedule a consultation right away.

Flexible spending accounts can typically be used to cover the cost of treatments for:

  • Glaucoma
  • Retinal detachment
  • Diabetic eye disease
  • Vascular occlusion

FSAs and HSAs may cover laser treatments, traditional surgical options, and even medications for a number of eye diseases. Check with your plan administrator to make sure your chosen procedure will be covered, then let us provide you with the most effective treatments for your specific retinal disorder. We can even provide a range of treatment options in cases where one particular procedure is more easily covered by your FSA or HSA.

Other Payment Options

At California Retina Associates, we strive to make our procedures and treatments available to as many people as possible. To accomplish this, we accept a range of payment methods. In addition to cash, most major credit cards, insurance, and FSA and HSA plans, we may be able to offer different financing options and payment plans for retina surgery. During your initial consultation we can discuss all of your payment options to help ensure you are provided the treatment you need to preserve and protect your eyes.

If you are experiencing any changes in visual quality or if you are in need of a surgical procedure to protect your vision, please contact California Retina Associates to schedule a consultation. Our retina specialists proudly serve San Diego and all surrounding California communities from our offices in El Centro and Chula Vista.
