Insurance and Financial Information

Illinois Retina Associates is committed to providing you and your family with cost-effective care. We accept assignment of all Medicare patients and most major insurances, including PPOs and HMOs. Please call our office to verify.

It is important to bring your current insurance card(s) to each visit and inform us of any changes in your coverage or to your home address. As changes may occur in the plans that we accept, please verify our acceptance of your plan at the time you make an appointment.

Call your preferred location for more information.

Benefits and Eligibility

Although Illinois Retina Associates will bill your insurance, full payment ultimately is your responsibility. We will make every effort to verify your coverage prior to your appointment, but we cannot guarantee coverage of services by your insurance company. To determine your insurance benefits and eligibility, please contact your insurance carrier directly. Please note that you are responsible for payment of all services that are not covered by your insurance plan. Any patient balance after insurance is normally due within 30 days, but we can set up a payment contract for outstanding accounts. We also request payment or co-payment for office services at the time they are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made.

If you belong to an HMO or PPO, please call us in advance. This will ensure that you have the necessary forms and authorization. Without them, your HMO or PPO may not allow you to see our doctor. We’re also available to help you file insurance claims. Feel free to call us about any financial arrangements.


Patient safety is our top priority. If you are having flu-like symptoms, fever, cough, chills, shortness of breath please DO NOT VISIT US at this time and contact your local health provider.

To ensure your health is protected, we are limiting the number of people in our offices. We are asking that ONLY PATIENTS enter our office. Visitors and/or support persons should remain in the car or other location. If the visitor or support person must be present, screening questions will be asked and if positive responses are received the visitor/ support person will not be allowed in the office.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
