We are pleased to introduce a new vision plan for FY 2019. This plan is administered by Aetna and uses the Aetna Vision Preferred network. The plan provides coverage for you and your covered family members to visit an in-network provider for a small copay or with an allowance for contact lenses or frames. See the chart below for a more detailed description of the plan. To locate a network provider, visit https://www.aetnavision.com/ or call 1-855-679-3815.
Aetna has a wide variety of discount opportunities for its plan members. One of this is its discount vision offering. It is the same program that you have had for years with one difference. There will no longer be a free eye exam for medical plan members, however you can use the discount program to obtain an eye exam at a network optometrist for $42. For other vision needs, you get a discount off of retail prices. Simply find a participating provider at Aetna.com, set up an appointment, and when it comes time to check out, show them your Aetna id card or let them know you are an Aetna dental plan member. They will apply your discount at the point of service.
