Giving your employees more of what they want with a new addition to our diverse mix of in-network providers
IN-NETWORK ALSO MEANS ONLINE CHOICES
78% of surveyed consumers think vision insurance should allow for in-network purchases online.1That's why we give our members multiple choices to shop online using their benefits.
Employees have different eyewear needs, shopping preferences and budgets. We know that EyeMed members range from value-conscious shoppers to high-end fashion frame lovers, and those who prefer a “trusted local advisor” to those who opt for a familiar regional or national retailer. It’s why we work to ensure that members have access to the diverse provider network they want.
