How do the vision plans compare?

Before you enroll in a vision plan, use the tables below to get the details you need to help you decide or use the printable Vision benefits comparison.

For information on specific benefits and exclusions, refer to the vision plan’s certificate of coverage (COC) or contact the plan directly. The figures listed below show what you pay for in-network coverage, with the amount up to which you would be reimbursed for out-of-network services in parentheses. If anything in these charts conflicts with the plan’s COC, the COC takes precedence.

Preauthorization criteria

Preauthorization is when you seek approval from your health plan for coverage of specific services, supplies, or drugs before receiving them. Some services or treatments (except emergencies) may require preauthorization before the plan pays for them. Preauthorization is not a guarantee, however, that your plan will pay for those services, supplies, or drugs.
