If you belong to an employer-sponsored plan, you’ve already paid for vision benefits. Most employers start their benefits on a calendar year cycle, but you can use them at any time during the year.
While plans vary by insurance carrier and employer, most cover an annual exam and an allowance to update your eyeglasses or contact lenses. You can learn more by visiting your carrier’s website or calling us at your local store. Our associates are happy to assist in looking up your plan benefits to get you started.
Some of the most popular plans in our network are listed below. Don’t see yours listed? Call your local store for specifics – we may still accept it!
If you don’t have vision insurance – or have overages not covered by your plan benefits – Flexible Savings Accounts (FSAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are great options to further maximize your savings.
FSAs and HSAs may be offered to you as part of your employer’s benefits package. They are pre-tax benefit accounts that you contribute money to, typically deducted from your paycheck. Funds can be used to pay for eligible medical expenses that aren’t covered by your health insurance plan. It’s a smart, simple way to save money while keeping your family healthy. Eye exams, prescription eyewear, and contact lenses are all FSA/HSA-eligible, so eye care is a great way to use any funds before they expire at the end of your annual benefits cycle!
* Forward Vision is an Open Access provider for these plans. We provide claim support for fast and efficient reimbursement of eligible out-of-pocket expenses.
