Understanding Your Eye Care Benefits

Seeing clearly is a vital part of good health

That’s why your health plan offers coverage for routine eye exams and other vision services – plus discounts on glasses and contacts. These benefits are available through the EyeMed Vision Care network. EyeMed offers you the freedom to choose your care from a list of more than 61,000 eye care providers and these well-known retail stores:

What do my eye care benefits include?

Routine eye exams

To receive the highest level of coverage for routine eye exams and other vision care services, you must visit an optometrist or ophthalmologist who participates in the EyeMed Vision Care Network.

Medical optometry vision services

Besides routine eye exams, providers in the EyeMed network are able to meet certain medical optometry needs. However, if you need to see an ophthalmologist to treat or monitor an eye disease or condition, be sure to confirm that the ophthalmologist participates in the Tufts Health Plan network.

Discounts on glasses + contacts

Enjoy members-only savings! As a Tufts Health Plan member, you will receive the following discounts from eye care providers who participate in the EyeMed network.

  • SAVE 35% on the price of frames and get discount prices on lenses when you buy a pair of glasses. Discounts may not apply to some frames; prices may vary by retail store.
  • SAVE 20% on the price of non-prescription sunglasses.
  • SAVE 5-15% on the price of LASIK and PRK laser vision correction. For a location near you and approval for the discount, please call 877-5LASER6.

To order contact lenses for less than the retail price and have them shipped to your home or office, visit contactsdirect.com/eyemedoffer. The cost of a contact lens evaluation and fitting is not covered by your eye care benefit, so members need to pay for these services themselves.
