Do I need Vision Insurance?
Your Aetna medical plan covers one eye exam per year. Additionally, Aetna provides a vision discount program called Aetna Vision Discounts.
If you want more comprehensive coverage, you can enroll in the VSP Vision plan either as a new-hire, or during our annual open enrollment in the fall of each year. VSP Vision is a fully-insured vision care program designed to provide you and your eligible dependents with a variety of benefits including:
Coverage for annual eye exam and necessary eyewear (lenses, frames, or contacts).
Discounts on additional eyewear, including contact lenses and laser vision correction surgery.
Coverage for out-of-network providers at higher out-of-pocket costs.
How do I sign up for the vision plan?
You can only sign up for the VSP Vision plan when you are first hired or during Open Enrollment each year. Complete the Enrollment/Change form. Premiums can be found on our website.
When I sign up for the vision plan, how does it work?
You will not get an ID card from VSP Vision. When you are ready to go to the eye doctor, you can visit their website at VSP.com to find a participating provider and check out your coverage. You may also call VSP Vision Member Services at 1-800-877-7195. When you have chosen a provider and call to make your appointment, tell the office that you are a VSP Vision member.
I didn't sign up for the vision plan. Do I have any vision coverage under the Aetna medical plan?
Yes, our medical plan covers an eye exam every year. Our medical plan does not cover the purchase of eyewear. To find an eye doctor (ophthalmologist or optometrist) visit http://www.aetna.com/ and use the DocFind® tool. Aetna also provides a vision discount program. To learn more about Aetna Vision Discounts sign onto Aetna Navigator and click on Benefits, then Health Programs. You can also call Vision One Customer Service at 800-793-8616.
