Paying for Your Prosthetic Eye: Things You Need to Know

Getting a new eye can be a wonderful experience, but also nerve-wracking. There can be so many questions that run through your mind. 

What will I look like after the procedure?

What can I do to prepare for the treatment?

How can I pay for it?

At Carolina Eye Prosthetics, we want to make sure each patient feels comfortable and confident with their prosthetic eye. In this post, we want to address one of the most common topics — financing a prosthetic eye.

Does insurance cover a prosthetic eye procedure?

If you’re wondering how you will cover the cost of your prosthetic eye, you’re not alone. This is a common concern we hear from patients. Although every insurance policy is unique, we will work with your provider to get the best possible coverage.

If you are unsure, don’t worry! We can help you find the information you need. You can easily consult us for free if you have any questions about financing and other options you can explore. All you have to do is reach out to our team by calling 1-877-763-9393 or sending us an email.

I don’t have insurance coverage. How can I pay for my prosthetic eye?

We want to support you on your journey to getting a new prosthetic eye, with or without insurance. If insurance is not an option for you, let us know so we can help find other ways for you to cover the cost of treatment. 

We accept Care Credit, which offers zero interest rates for out-of-pocket expenses at $200 or more, paid within 6-24 months. This can be a wonderful option if you are looking for a staggered payment plan.

There are also other resources to get financial assistance for prosthetic services. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provides medical grants based on your income and health condition. Amputee Coalition has a great list of nonprofits, helping those with medical needs. 

North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) also has grant opportunities for people with medical and financial challenges.

There’s no better feeling than giving the gift of restored confidence to your child through their new prosthetic eye. At Carolina Eye Prosthetics, we want to make it happen for you and your child.

If your child is a beneficiary under your healthcare insurance, you can also verify with us about coverage. Many providers will also consider prosthesis a necessary medical procedure, even for children. Red Tree House has a great list of nonprofits that help children with unique needs or medical expenses.
