As a result of COVID-19, we understand that many of our clients and their employees have been forced to make some very difficult choices, including choices that may result in EyeMed members no longer participating in a vision benefits plan. At the same time, vision correction needs are critical for many of us to carry on with our day-to-day lives. Our EyeMed Cares plan is one way EyeMed is making a difference. Through 12/31/2020, former plan participants impacted by COVID-19 reductions in force will be eligible to save through the EyeMed Cares plan.
The EyeMed Cares plan provides the following:
Former EyeMed subscribers will be mailed a custom member packet to their homes. The member packet will provide details on an exclusive network of providers—including those closest to their home—who have agreed to provide a significantly discounted eye exam and help them save on their out-of-pocket costs. This includes thousands of providers from our Advantage Cares network, including LensCrafters, Target Optical, Pearle Vision and independent providers.
EyeMed is covering the cost of the EyeMed Cares plan for both clients and former plan participants. The member will not be asked to provide any membership fees for participation and will only be responsible for out-of-pocket costs for their exam and materials after receiving services and/or making purchases.
EyeMed is committed to helping your employees who were impacted by furloughs and layoffs during these unprecedented times. Partnerships like ours are built on taking care of members through the good and difficult times. Originally designed to help members in communities recover and rebuild from natural disasters and other local events, our leadership team made the decision to launch EyeMed Cares on a national scale to help all previous plan participants impacted by the global pandemic.
