Vision Insurance

Vision Insurance helps to offset the costs of routine eye exams and prescription eye wear. Annual eye exams are essential, not just to detect vision problems, but as an important preventive measure for maintaining overall health and wellness.

Most Vision Insurance plans have a small copay for annual eye exams—typically $10 or $15. Some plans also cover retinal imaging to help screen for Glaucoma. Many Vision Insurance plans offer frame and contact lens allowances. This allowance reduces the cost you pay for a new pair of frames or for contact lenses. In addition, some plans will also provide a discount off the retail price of a second pair of glasses or even sunglasses.

 

Typically, Vision Insurance plans have small copays for standard lenses, such as bifocal and trifocal polycarbonate lenses. Covered lens options are also available, such as scratch-resistant, anti-reflective coating, and transitions. In most cases, if you want a certain lens option not covered, you will pay the cost over the plan’s allowed amount.

 

Certain Vision Insurance plans cover Lasik eye surgery for a reduced, discounted copay amount. If using a Lasik provider not in the plan’s network, the member will generally receive a discount off the retail cost of the surgery. The discounted amount depends on the actual provider.
