Vision Insurance Information
Group Vision insurance is contract between the employer group and an insurance organization which provides vision care in return for a premium. In exchange for their premium payments, participants receive eye examinations (given by doctors and clinics contracted with the insurance organization) and corrective eyewear. Exactly how much of the fees are covered varies according to the specifics of the plan.
Even if you have perfect vision, proper preventative eye care is an essential practice towards ensuring the health of your vision in the years to come. The most important step is receiving routine, annual examinations from a qualified eye care professional. Like most Group Insurance products, because the potential for loss is spread over many, rates are much lower for Group Vision Insurance when compared to individual vision insurance. Lynk offers both Group and Individual Vision plans through the major two carriers, EyeMed and VSP.
Plan features and benefits will vary depending on the provider, but features typically discounted include:
- Eye examinations
- Surgical procedures - including Lasik procedures where available.
- Contact Lenses
- Prescription sunglasses
