Now Is The Perfect Time To Use Your Vision Insurance Benefits
You’ve already paid for vision insurance benefits if you’ve opted into your employer-sponsored plan. Most employers begin their benefits on a calendar year cycle.
How do I use my vision insurance benefits?
It’s easy! Just follow these simple steps to maximize your benefits:
1. Log in to your insurance carrier’s site to view your plan details
Many carriers have a benefits plan sheet that lists each of the benefits you’re eligible to receive. Familiarize yourself with what your plan covers, as well as any out-of-pocket costs.
2. Find a participating provider

Why should I take advantage of my employer’s vision insurance plan?
Although plans vary based on carrier and employer, most offer a range of benefits to protect your vision, including:
Annual eye exam
To detect changes in your vision and screen for other eye conditions.
Annual update to corrective lenses
Applicable to the purchase of glasses OR contact lenses*
Update to eyeglass frames
Offered annually or every other year, depending on your plan*
*Frame allowance, contact lens allowance, and eyeglass lens coverage varies by plan. Most vision insurance plans cover up to $130 on contact lens supplies OR eyeglass frames. Standard eyeglass lenses are covered at 100%, but there may be additional out of pocket expenses for certain lens options or specialty lenses. Some of the larger insurance carriers have negotiated discounted rates with providers for these types of options.
