The Illinois Eye Institute participates in a variety of health insurance products and plans including Medicare and Medicaid. If the Illinois Eye Institute is listed in your insurance company's network, you’ll be able to receive care at our facilities with your “in-network” benefits. That means your insurance company has agreed to accept certain negotiated rates, which can lower your out-of-pockets costs.
If your insurance network does not include the Illinois Eye Institute, but has out-of-network benefits, you may have a higher out-of-pocket responsibility than if you received services from an in-network provider.
Our list of accepted insurance providers is subject to change at any time.
You should contact your insurance company to confirm the Illinois Eye Institute providers participate in their network before scheduling your appointment. Your insurance company's customer service representative can also help you verify your benefits, out-of-pocket costs and coverage.
