Financial Policy

Karns Vision is dedicated to providing our patients with the best eye care services. It is important to us that you understand our financial policy so that we can serve you in the best way. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call our staff to discuss them.

We go above and beyond to try to determine your insurance coverage before your appointment. We can obtain information including our participation in your plan and the amount of coverage your insurance company provides. Since we are contracted providers for hundreds of insurance plans it is impossible for us to know the intricate details for every plan. It is your full responsibility to determine matters relating to your insurance and all charges incurred.

I appreciate Dr. Shane seeing Ralph so soon. He was the reason we went to the hospital. He did an excellent job in diagnosing Ralph as having had a stroke. If it wasn't for him there's no telling how...
