Enhanced vision benefits

We are moving the vision plan from Spectera to EyeMed, with improved vision coverage and a larger overall provider network. 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.

Highlights include:

  • 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.

Attend the EyeMed virtual benefits fair

You can also find out more details about EyeMed, find an in-network provider and get answers to frequently asked questions by attending an EyeMed virtual benefits fair at eyemedvirtualbenefitfair.com / password EC44VWKR.
