Vision Care Plan

How Your Vision Care Plan Works 

Your Vision Care Plan covers a wide range of vision care expenses. EyeMed Vision Care is the Claim Administrator for the Plan. 

EyeMed Vision Care maintains a nationwide network of participating vision care providers. Each time you or an eligible dependent needs vision care, you can choose: 

  • a network provider; or
  • an out-of-network provider. 

COVERED EXPENSES
Covered Vision Care Plan expenses include: 

  • eyeglasses (lenses and frames)
  • contact lenses
  • laser vision correction (network providers only)

A more complete description of covered expenses and associated payments may be found in the Covered Expenses and Plan Payment section. 

NETWORK CARE
You can save time and money by using EyeMed Vision Care’s nationwide network of participating vision care providers, because: 

  • your network provider will file your claims for you; and
  • most network services are provided at a substantial discount (compared to the out-of-network cost).
You can locate participating EyeMed providers in your area by contacting EyeMed at 1-866-723-0596. You can also visit the EyeMed Vision Care website at www.eyemedvisioncare.com and choose ACCESS from the provider locator dropdown box.

OUT-OF-NETWORK CARE
Your out-of-pocket costs may be higher if you use an out-of-network vision care provider (i.e., a provider that does not participate in the EyeMed Vision Care network). If you use an out-of-network provider, you will pay the difference between: 

  • the full amount of the out-of-network provider’s charge; and
  • the amount (if any) that EyeMed pays. 

If you use an out-of-network provider, you will also be responsible for filing your own claim. See the Filing Your Claim section for more information on filing out-of-network claims.
