ForeseeHome™ - AMD Monitoring Program

FAQ

Q: Will my insurance reimburse for this product?

A: The ForeseeHome AMD Monitoring Program is now a Medicare-covered service.  Patients enrolled in Medicare who meet the eligibility criteria for Dry AMD at high risk of progression to Wet AMD now have access to this Medicare-covered service.  Benefit verification can be completed by contacting Notal Vision at 1-888-910-2020.

 

Q: How do I get started using ForeseeHome?

A: The ForeseeHome AMD Monitoring Program is available by prescription from your eyecare doctor.  If your eyecare doctor has not previously prescribed ForeseeHome, instructions on prescribing can be found on www.foreseehome.com, or by contacting Notal Vision at 1-888-910-2020.


Q: How often should I take the ForeseeHome test?

A: Once a day is the standard recommendation.


Q: Do I still see my eye doctor for my regular visits?

A: Yes. The ForeseeHome Program provides ongoing monitoring between your regular office visits.  There may be instances where changes in your test results trigger an alert but the doctor does not diagnose wet AMD or where your test results do not trigger an alert but your doctor diagnoses wet AMD.

 
Q: Does the ForeseeHome diagnose wet AMD?

A: No.  Diagnosis is the responsibility of the prescribing eye doctor. The ForeseeHome provides functional data about your vision which your doctor can incorporate into a comprehensive patient assessment.


Q: Do I need a computer or internet to use the ForeseeHome device?

A: No, the ForeseeHome does not require a home computer or internet connection. To start using your device, simply plug it into a power outlet.


Q: Can more than one person use a single device?

A: No. Each device is personally calibrated to a single individual.

 
Q: What happens if a change in my results is detected?

A: Some variability in testing results is typical.  The ForeseeHome is designed to trigger an alert when test result changes are considered statistically significant.  In the event of an alert, the Notal Vision Data Monitoring Center will contact your eye doctor so an appointment can be scheduled as soon as possible.


Q: Can I see my test results?

A: Yes.  Test reports can be viewed at any time by you and your doctor through the secure online database.  (To gain access to your reports, we will need a signed waiver from your physician.)


Q: How do I test if I go on vacation?

A: The lightweight monitor (in its original packaging) was designed for easy travel. In addition, you can send data from any location and no long distance service is required. If no phone line or cellular service is available, you can still test daily. The device will store all data and then transmit it once connected back into a phone or cellular service is available.


Q: Who do I contact if I have questions about the ForeseeHome?

A: Call the Notal Vision Customer Service Center at 888-910-2020 with any questions. Please do not call your doctor’s office.
