EyeMed’s network includes more independent ophthalmologists and optometrists along with many popular retail chains such as Walmart, MyEyeDr., America’s Best, Sam’s Club, Target, Eyemart Express and Eyeglass World.
- Reduced material copay from $25 to $15
- Increased frames and contacts coverage (referred to as an allowance) from $175 to $200
- Additional discounts through EyeMed’s various partners such as Sunglass Hut and International Travel Find the details in Your 2021 Benefits Guide.
Out-of-network providers can be low-cost
Did you know you can still use out-of-network providers as part of our new EyeMed vision plan? When you use an out-of-network provider such as Costco, Visionworks and/or Warby Parker, you will be reimbursed up to the out-of-network allowance. Review all of your options. Depending on where you go, an out-of-network provider could end up being lower cost than an in-network boutique.
NOTE: You will have to pay out of pocket and file a claim to be reimbursed for out-of-network providers. See the summary 2021 Vision plan chart for specifics. Plus, you can use your HSA or Health Care FSA (if you participate) to pay for your out-of-pocket costs.
