Vision Insurance

Understanding Your Options

You are offered two vision options through Avesis.

Plans

Plans are the structure of your coverage: the premiums, deductibles, co-pays and in/out network coverage.

Type of PlanDescription

Vision Preferred Provider Plan

  • In a vision PPO, you receive the greatest benefit when you use providers included in the Plan's 'Preferred' network.
  • You may use providers not in the Plan's 'Preferred' network, but you will need to pay for the services up front and then submit a claim to Avesis to receive the out-of-network benefit. 

Vision Discount Program

  • This program will provide each member with substantial discounts on vision exams and corrective materials received from provider that are in the network.
  • There are no out-of-network benefits. Providers not participating in the program will not honor any of the discounted fees. The member will be responsible for full retail payment. 

If you do not enroll in the Avesis Advantage option you will be automatically enrolled in the Avesis Discount Program at no cost to you.

Network

Networks describe the company that provides access to a group of providers (optometrists or ophthalmologists)
