Transparency in Healthcare

In accordance with Florida law (House Bill 1175), Aker Kasten Eye Center is required to let you know that you may or may not pay less for services at another facility or in another health care setting. Furthermore, other health care providers, such as anesthesiologists and laboratory testing are not a part of Aker Kasten Eye Center’s fees. Those providers will bill separately for their services rendered and may or may not participate with the same health insurers or health maintenance organizations as Aker Kasten Eye Center.

Patients and prospective patients may request from Aker Kasten Eye Center and other health care providers a more personalized estimate of charges and other information. The price may differ due to complications or treatment of a patient’s personal health condition. To help expedite your request to obtain an estimate, when calling, please provide us with the following: Name, Address, Date of Birth, Insurance Company Name and ID number.

If Aker Kasten Eye Center believes that you have health insurance and/or HMO coverage(s) that may cover some or all of the Services, Aker Kasten Eye Center will initiate contact with them to determine your cost-sharing responsibilities for your bill. You may contact them directly as well for additional information concerning your responsibilities. If Aker Kasten Eye Center determines that you have cost-sharing responsibilities, you will be required to pay in full on or before Services are provided. We have financial payment plans offered through Wells Fargo for those who qualify. Patients are required to apply directly to Wells Fargo via online or telephone. If you are unable to pay your cost-sharing responsibilities because you believe you are medically indigent, or you are not covered by any health insurance or HMO, upon request, Aker Kasten Eye Center Facility, in its sole discretion, may offer you a discount on the amount due and/or offer a payment plan. Any such discount is considered by Aker Kasten Eye Center to be “charity care.” There is no formal application process for obtaining “charity care” at Aker Kasten Eye Center. Aker Kasten Eye Center’s standard collection policy is to produce and send one or more bills to patients for their cost sharing amounts, which if not paid on a timely basis, may then be placed with an attorney or collection agency to pursue such unpaid amounts. If accounts are placed with an attorney and/or collection agency, the costs charged by the attorney and/or collection agency will be passed onto the patient to pay, and the patients’ credit score may be negatively impacted.

Patients and prospective patients should contact each health care practitioner who will provide services to determine the health insurers and health maintenance organizations with which the healthcare practitioner participates as a network provider or preferred provider.
