THE DOCTOR WILL GIVE FREE CONTACT LENES ARE UNCLAIMED MEDICAID GLASSES TO UNCOVERED PATIENTS FOR BRING HER IN AT LEAST 5 MEDICAID PATIENTS. SHE ALSO REFERS MEDICAID PATIENTS TO HER DR. FRIENDS FOR THE SAME EXAM SHE PERFORMED BECAUSE SHE WILL IN TURN GET A GREAT KICKBACK LIKE FREE TICKETS FOR HER FAMILY OR EXPENCIVE WINE. SHE CHARGES MEDICAID FOR SERVICES THAT ARE GIVEN TO OTHER PATIENTS FREE, LIKE CONTACT LENS FOLLOW-UP OR CHARGE MEDICAID FOR EYE EXAMS THAT ARE FREE BECAUSE THE PATIENT PAID FOR THERE GLASSES.

If it’s your belief Medicaid fraud is being committed then it’s your civic duty to report it. If indeed you are in Georgia then the allegation can be reported by calling 1-800-508-9109, Georgia State Health Care Fraud Control Unit.

So how long ago did this place fire you, eye?

Are you the one typing up these policies for the black people down there? No wonder they can't understand them. I bet they're not alone either.

Please post the telphone number for this establishment. After trying to read the all CAPS LETTERS, I'm in need of an eye exam.

Do you have any proof of these allegations?

I beg to differ on your opinion of Belvedere Eye Center. When another ($99/two pair) company gave my daughter a bad prescription, Belvedere fixed it. With a family of five who all wear glasses, this is a place I can go where the final price is exactly what they say it will be. I have found the staff to be nothing except friendly and accommodating. The demographics of the area are primarily black and poor and the store may serve a majority of Medicaid consumers. I have been a customer for three years, and am very satisfied both with their billing, product and follow-up service.
