Vision Basic and Plus

  • In- and out-of-network benefits

  • Glasses or contact lenses every calendar year

  • New frames every two calendar years (Vision Basic)

  • New frames every calendar year (Vision Plus)

Quick coverage comparisons

Both Vision plans are very similar. The main differences are the copays for eyeglass lenses and how often the plan covers new frames. Check the Vision Basic and Vision Plus plan summaries for details.

Using your plan with in-network providers

When you make your appointment, identify yourself as an EyeMed member and provide your name and date of birth to verify your coverage. At your appointment, pay your $10 exam copay.

You can purchase eyewear materials from the provider who performed your exam or any other in-network provider. Pay the materials copay for your glasses. You're also responsible for non-covered lens options, such as tint and anti-reflective coating.

Contact lenses coverage

You receive full coverage for contact lenses at a network vision provider. You're responsible for up to $55 toward the cost for a standard fit and follow-up evaluation which includes two follow-up visits or 10% off a premium fit and follow-up evaluation. Your provider will determine if you require a standard or premium fit and follow up evaluation. You have a $125 allowance to use toward the purchase of your contact lenses. The entire allowance must be used at one time.  If you wear hard contact lenses, you receive a 15% discount on the amount over the allowance.   

You may also order contact lenses online at ContactsDirect. Your in-network benefits are applied at checkout and you receive free shipping.

You don’t need to file a claim when you receive care from network providers.

Using your plan with out-of-network providers

If you use an out-of-network provider, you pay the full cost at the time of your appointment, then submit receipts with a claim form for reimbursement. You're reimbursed up the out-of-network amounts found on your benefit summary.

Get the latest frames

When you visit a retail or private practice provider within the EyeMed vision network, you have a $150 allowance to apply to the cost of your frames. If you select a frame that exceeds your $150 allowance, you're responsible for the difference less a 20% discount.      

Additional vision materials discount program

All enrolled members receive a 40% discount on additional complete pairs of glasses once your funded benefits have been used. You may use the discount toward as many additional pairs as desired at any time throughout the year.

Not all providers offer this discount. Call EyeMed Customer Service or look on the provider locator to determine which providers accept the additional discounts in your area.
