It’s not the part of the LASIK experience that anyone is eager to talk about; nevertheless, it’s important that prospective LASIK patients be aware up front of all their options when it comes to paying for their procedure. At Campbell Cunningham Laser Center, we understand that although our patients are generally very happy with the results of their LASIK treatment, the costs can sometimes be challenging.
If you are a candidate for LASIK, Campbell Cunningham Laser Center offers several options for paying:
First, we do accept cash as well as certified checks. However, we do not accept personal checks.
Second, you can always use a credit card to pay for the procedure. Our office accepts VISA and MasterCard.
Third, our patients have the option of setting up a payment plan through CareCredit, a healthcare credit card designed to pay for a wide range of health, beauty and wellness needs. This method allows you to make monthly payments for as many as 36 months, with the first 24 months available as interest-free, same-as-cash payments for approved candidates.
To get an estimate of how much your monthly payments might be through Care Credit, use the financing calculator on our website.
With a few exceptions (military, professional actors/athletes), most insurance companies won’t cover the cost of LASIK treatments, but some insurers will offer a member discount of 10 to 15 percent. Also, the procedure is also generally accepted by most medical flexible spending account plans, which allocate pre-tax dollars to medical expenses not covered by insurance.
Once you feel more at ease about undergoing LASIK and the costs associated, you can always contact us to schedule a free consultation or to learn more information about what to expect.
