Patient Information


Medical Insurance

We accept and file most major health insurance plans. Please check with your insurance company if Dr. M. Scott Hickman/Ad Astra Eye, LLC is in-network with your specific plan. If you have additional questions about your coverage, please feel free to contact us.


Your insurance plan(s) will require us to collect the “specialist co-pay” at the time of service. Please familiarize yourself with your specialist co-pay.


In addition to your copay, if your insurance requires a referral from your primary care physician, the referral must be in place before you see the doctor.

Refraction test?

Refraction is a procedure necessary for our physician to evaluate your vision and or write you a prescription for glasses. A refraction would help determine whether the difficulty in vision is associated with a medical problem or a need for glasses.

All copays and non-covered services such as refractions (new prescription for your glasses/contact lens) are due at the time of service.

*Self-Pay Patients *

If you do not have any medical insurance, all office services are due at the time of service. Please ask our staff for the self-pay patient courtesy rate.
