Dear New Patient:
Welcome to Attleboro Vision Care Associates, P.C.
Please complete the enclosed Patient Information Sheet and Medical Questionnaire using
black or blue ink, and bring them with you to your first appointment. This will speed up
the registration process for you.
If this is your first visit with us, please bring your glasses and/or contact lens boxes if possible, or your last written prescription. For existing contact lens wearers, please wear your contacts to your appointment.
Please note that Medicare and most major insurance carriers require physicians to obtain this medical information and retain it in their patients’ medical records. These documents will become part of your record.
Some insurance carriers only allow a routine eye exam every 24 months. Please note that you are responsible for checking with your insurance carrier to insure that you are eligible for your visit. This will help prevent delays at your appointment and insure you do not unexpectedly receive a bill for your visit. Also, authorization of insurance is not a guarantee of payment.
If you belong to a health plan that requires a referral for an eye exam, please contact your primary care physician to obtain one. Please note that the patient is responsible for obtaining a referral.
Again, we welcome you to Attleboro Vision Care Associates, P.C., and we look forward to meeting you and your family’s vision care needs.

When was your last eye exam?______________
-Cash, Check, all major credit cards or CareCredit healthcare credit card. (CareCredit is a healthcare credit card with special financing and payment options* for medical expenses.) Note: There is a $25 fee on all returned checks.
Please Note: A refraction is a measurement of the lens power necessary to prescribe glasses or other corrective lenses.
Most medical insurance plans, including Medicare, do not cover routine refractions or routine eye exams (when no medical eye problem is known or suspected). Medicare, and most other insurance plans, insists that we charge separately for that portion of the examination, since it is not a covered service. You will receive an explanation of benefits from them itemizing your responsibilities.
It is customary to pay for professional services when rendered. However, if you have a medical problem then we will bill your insurance on your behalf.** You are authorizing your insurance carrier to make payment directly to Attleboro Vision Care for any medical benefits due for services rendered and this is a direct assignment of your rights and benefits under this policy. You will be responsible for any co-payments, deductibles and/or non-covered services as determined by your insurance company. If you have a separate plan that covers routine examinations and/or glasses, please let us know. Your vision plan may assist you with your eye care needs that are not covered by your medical plan. We will bill your vision plan as above.** In accordance with our contract and with your insurance provider, we are responsible for collecting, and you are responsible for paying, co-payments at the time of service.
AUTHORIZATION OF INSURANCE IS NOT A GUARANTEE OF PAYMENT.
Please initial the following:
____ I authorize Attleboro Vision Care to release information to my insurance carrier to determine my benefits and I recognize and accept responsibility for any balance remaining after payment of such benefits.
____I understand that Attleboro Vision Care requires payment prior to products received/services rendered.
____I understand that I may be responsible for a contact lens exam fee $50-$150, dependent upon insurance.
____I am aware that I may be assessed a fee of $25 for canceling more than 3 times in a calendar year without a 24 hour notice.
____I understand that Attleboro Vision Care does not allow returns on prescription eye wear as they are made to order.
HMO Referral Waiver:
____I understand that it is my responsibility to obtain a referral from my primary care physician and that any charges incurred as a result of failing to do so are my responsibility.
For Medicare patients:
____I understand that I may be responsible for a refraction fee of $45, dependent upon supplemental insurance.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
*Subject to credit approval **However, if we do not receive payment from your insurance carrier within 30 days, you will be responsible for payment of your treatment fees and collection of your benefits directly from your insurance carrier.
