Save More Time With C&E
Consolidated Monthly Billing
Unlike doctor alliances or franchise groups, C&E Vision is a TRUE Optical Buying Group that not only saves our members money but also saves you thousands of hours annually by consolidating each of your vendor purchases into one, easy to read statement. Why waste time reconciling multiple statements, writing numerous checks and dealing with each vendor separately each time you have a billing question. Each statement clearly shows your monthly savings, what is currently due, what invoices that have payment terms and all billings are separated by the vendor it was purchased from so you can quickly reconcile your accounts payable and get back to what truly matters, your patients.
