EyeMed Vision Plan

The vision plan is provided by EyeMed Vision, a nationally recognized vision provider offering a comprehensive benefit plan at a low monthly rate. This plan is a PPO model, allowing you the flexibility of visiting a network provider, or to choose a provider out of network. The plan offers a broad range of coverage, including exams, lenses, contact lenses and frames. In addition, it allows you to obtain your exam and lenses once every 12 months and your frames once every 24 months. Please click on Vision Plan Benefits to view a detailed description of this plan.

Finding a Provider in the Access Network

The EyeMed Select network includes the nation’s most popular retail locations as LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical and Target Optical with thousands of independent providers. Please click on to be taken to the provider directory. Under Locate a Provider on the left side of the page, choose Select as your network, then enter your zip code in the appropriate field and click Submit. A list of available providers will appear, listed by distance to your location. Please call your selected provider first to make sure they are still a member of the EyeMed Vision Care Select Network.

Accessing Service

Once your enrollment into the EyeMed Vision Care Plan is confirmed, you will be entered into the EyeMed network system. Please allow 10-14 days from your date of enrollment to receive your ID card. When making an appointment with a provider, they will ask you for your name, date of birth and plan number, located on your ID card.

If you choose to obtain service from an out-of-network provider, please use the Claim Form to obtain reimbursement for your services from EyeMed. Please follow the instructions on the form to properly submit both the form and your receipts for service from the out-of-network provider.
