The Eyes Have It At bemd.com!

    Please spend a few minutes visiting bemd.com, which is the medical web site for Dr. Brett Elliott.  This page provides basic information summarizing bemd.com and describes the services that Dr. Elliott has for both patients and physicians. The  User Agreement Page contains the rules for the use of this web site.

    The primary goal of bemd.com is to provide education and information.  There are two main sections.   Dr. Brett Elliott intends the first section for his eye patients and the second for applicants who are applying for pilot medical certificates.  In both sections there is local information and links to other resources.

   The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates that physicians have formal policies describing how patient health care information is disclosed, and the rights patients have with respect to this data. The pages on Medical Privacy describe these procedure, and they were last updated on  July 26, 2013.  Dr. Brett Elliott's  Corporate Compliance section details corporate compliance policies germane to his practice.   

    These pages will never be completed as medicine is constantly changing. If you have a web venue that is a valuable resource make a recommendation so Dr. Elliott may include it on bemd.com. 

 Please send a note or visit our "From you..."  page letting us know about items that you would like to see on bemd.com, what was particularly worthwhile, and what was not helpful.

For Eye Patients Visiting Us

bullet

    If you have been referred from the emergency room bring in their discharge instruction sheet.  If you are referred from another physician's office a note or your personal knowledge regarding the issue that is prompting your visit will often save phone calls.

bullet

   Bring with you eye drops or ointment that you are using.

bullet

   Have a list of other medications you are taking, drug allergies and significant non-ophthalmic conditions or surgeries.

bullet

   When possible bring a driver as we often dilate your pupils and this can make it more difficult to see for several hours after the exam.  This is particularly important if you can not see properly because of incorrect glasses  or ocular disease.

bullet

   If you are a contact lens wearer bring in your contact lens care kit and case if you have one. If you have glasses bring them in even if they are broken as it is useful to know what you are used to wearing. 

bullet

   When you are transferring from another practitioner bring in previous treatment records if they are easily obtainable.  If you do not have them and we need them for ongoing care you will be asked to fill out a record release request form.

bullet

    If you have questions write them down and bring them with you. At the completion of the exam we ask if you have any and this is a good time to address them.  If you remember one you forgot call our office and we will return your call.

bullet

    When new patients arrive they are requested to fill out a one-page form.  If you wish, print it, and bring it in completed.  Click on you Browser Back Button to return here after printing the page. Currently we are not having forms filled out online because of privacy considerations.

 

Insurance, HMO Information and Payment Methods

    We are a participating Medicare provider, and accept the various forms of Coventry, Aetna and Blue Cross Insurance's. At the time of service any co payments and/or deductibles are due.  Certain types of medical coverage do not pay for routine eye exams, and will only help with the bill if there is a medical problem.  Except for emergencies, prior to your visit verify with our staff insurance coverage unless you are familiar with the details of you coverage.  If you are provided care for services which are not covered by plans in which we participate, charges are payable when services are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made.  For medical services we accept cash or checks, and no credit cards.  If you should have any questions regarding fees or if you believe any charges were not appropriate please contact us so corrections can be made.
