There is 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 employees and their 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 difference is the discount vision offering. It is the same program that employees have had for years with one difference; There will no longer be a free eye exam for medical plan members, however members can use the discount program to obtain an eye exam at a network optometrist for $42. For other vision needs, there are discounts off of retail prices. Simply find a participating provider at Aetna.com, set up an appointment and when checking out, show the Aetna ID card. The discount will be applied at the point of service.
