Answers about the Vision plan, including eligibility, options, enrollment, customer service and more.
The vision plan is designed to cover “basic” lenses and eye frames. Additional charges for specialty lenses and lens add-ons or upgrades are not covered, but many are subject to discounts. These extra charges are paid directly to the provider by the member. Items requiring additional charges are listed under the Exclusions section of your certificate.
Progressive power lenses are covered up to the retail value of the provider’s standard trifocal lenses. You pay the provider the difference between the provider’s in-office retail price for standard trifocal lenses and the retail price for the style of progressive lenses you have selected. The difference may also be subject to discounts.

You can select any frame in the in-network provider’s frame inventory up to $125 without any additional out-of-pocket cost. If you select frames greater than $125, you pay the difference to the provider. The overage is subject to a 20% discount from participating providers.
No, unlike some benefit plans, it is not necessary to pre-select your provider or to give Superior Vision the name of your provider prior to receiving services as long as they are a Superior Vision provider.
