Thursday, May 1, 2014

Did you know?

The Davis Vision program is part of each medical plan offered by Lehigh. When you elect medical insurance coverage, you are automatically enrolled in Davis Vision as well. This includes any of your family members who are also covered by Lehigh’s medical plan.

Davis Vision has over 23,400 vision care providers and optical supplier locations across the United States. There are over 2,000 providers and suppliers in Pennsylvania, with more than 141 in the Lehigh Valley area.

Annual Benefits

Your basic annual benefits are outlined in the chart below.  Contact information for the vision program is contained in the box at the bottom of the chart.

You and your family members who are covered under Lehigh’s medical insurance can receive these services or supplies once every 12 months. By using a network provider or supplier, services or materials received are covered in full by the plan or covered from first dollar to the maximum level.

If you use a non-participating supplier or provider, there is a specific level of reimbursement for each service or supply the program covers. 

Beyond Annual Benefits

You and your covered family members may receive any of the covered services and products as needed (more often than once every 12 months) if you use network providers or suppliers for all materials and services. In that case, you will receive a 20 percent discount off of the network provider’s standard charge for services beyond the annual benefit.  You are then responsible for the remaining cost.

 Combining Contact Lenses and Glasses

If you or your dependent wears both contact lenses and glasses, only one will be covered at the in network benefit level each year. The other will be reimbursed at the out-of-network level when a network provider or supplier is used for all materials and services. Please refer to the coverage chart for reimbursement level details.
