Q: For laser floater removal (LFR), can the evaluation and procedure be done on the same day, and will insurance pay for both evaluation and procedure?
A: Yes, for LFR, the eval and procedure can be done on the same day.
- Eval: can be submitted to insurance, for the medical diagnosis of posterior vitreous detachment (LVD, or floaters), there will be co-pay and deductible as usual;
- LFR procedure: it is out of pocket. However, we do have a special going on right now, i.e., 50% off ($3,000/eye, reduced to $1,500/eye).
