      The Administrator I work for has said that Medicare has rules that opticians cannot get our lab lenses, no vendor frames, NO incentives can be received or accepted. I sell lenses that I haven't even tried myself. She claims this is under the medicare "kick-back" law. I have tried to research this also checking the CFR. This law is mainly for "referrals" with doctors working with each other's practices. There seems to be a law that exempts certain things from this "Medicare Law". Also, it seems like every week a Rep from a pharma company is bringing elaborate lunches for the whole office. I guess that's ok because she says its "under $20.00 per person!
      Anyone know anything certain about...If you take Medicare, you cannot, as an optician get ANY free lenses, frames, etc.......

    It was a customer's favorite frame that she lost a week after I put new lenses in it. I don't know how old it is; I didn't sell it to her in the first place. Anybody have one in the back room?...

    I'm still on strike against HOYA until they get their ---- together and make amends for past transgressions.

    I'm a fan of PhotoFusion brown, myself. A lot of patients say it has a red undertone,...

    Halston Frames?

    Have a patient who came in with a pair of his own frames that he purchased at JC Penney back in the 1990s. They're in exceptional shape, especially as the patient says they've been his only frames...

    I guess I should ask... would it even be worth it if you are still on hold with them forever? We do not take Davis for materials, just for exams, so we loose a lot of patients. If I could use my...
