Vision Hardware Insurance

All qualified employees, their spouses, and their children under the age of 26 are provided with supplemental vision benefits.  Annual eye exams are considered preventative medical and included as part of the medical benefit. This vision supplement is a reimbursable option that will help cover the cost of an eye exam (out of network) and reimburse for glasses or contact lens on a fixed schedule.


Give your providers your medical card (UMR) for your vision exam.  Contacts and eyeglasses are a reimbursable program through EMI/Opticare.  For contacts and eye glasses, present your EMI card or file the form below with Opticare.
