Fees & Pricing

 

How we're able to offer LASIK at discounted prices

If you've done any price comparison research, you've  seen   that most doctors charge more than we do.  The reason is most have to lease their surgical equipment-and pay a "per use" charge  and their "per use" as well. To cover their leasing and "per use" charge they have to charge their patients more. On top of that, most don't own own their facilities, so they have high lease payments to cover.

 There are three primary reasons we can charge so much less for our procedures-and still make money too.

1. We own our own state-of-art LASIK equipment.

2.We own our own facility -so we are not at the mercy of landlords and high medical facility rents.

3. BEST LASIK Laser Eye Center is an independent medical practice. Unlike many others, we are not owned or managed by public companies or an investment group.

These reasons enable us to keep overhead down and pass  on the savings to our patients without ever sacrificing the quality of our care.

  • Flexible Spending Accounts ("FSA") - Depending on your tax bracket, using an FSA to pay for Laser Eye Surgery could save you significantly.  Check with your benefits manager at work to find out if Flexible Spending Accounts or Health Spending Accounts are offered by your company.  You specify how much of your salary you want deducted from each paycheck - this money is exempt from federal, state, and Social Security taxes. This money will be deposited in your Health Care FSA. Most companies allow you to spend the money any time during the year, even when it has not fully accumulated in your account.  FSA funds that are not used get forfeited at the end of the year.  We suggest scheduling your exam first, so you'll know how much to invest in your FSA.
  • Health Savings Accounts - ("HSA") - Many patients see an enormous win when they use their Health Spending Accounts for vision correction.  Their tax-free funds pay for their LASIK procedure, and patients get to take advantage of the portability of their Health Spending Account.  HSAs or Health Spending Accounts were created to encourage people to save for their retirements and medical expenses. Many patients take advantage of HSAs, because their accounts became tax-free through continued investment, and patients know any investment remaining, after paying for desired treatment, won't be forfeited when the year ends.  HSAs are intended to be portable, and HSA funds do not get forfeited like Flexible Spending Accounts - HSAs are, more often, compared to IRAs and savings accounts. We strongly suggest you speak with your benefits manager or HR department, to understand all details regarding an HSA.
  • Insurance Coverage & Discounts - Please contact your HR department to determine if you might be eligible for a discount or coverage through your Health or Vision plan.   "Vision Care" coverage such as that provided by Vision Service Plan ("VSP") and Medical Eye Services ("MES") typically does not cover the cost of vision-correcting treatment, but coverage can vary from one group or company to another, and on occasion there is some (limited) coverage or discount consideration that may apply.
