To help you keep life in focus, vision coverage through UnitedHealthcare Vision Plan provides benefits for eye exams and vision correction treatment.

You have two options, the Standard option or the Premium “buy-up” option. In-network benefits are covered in full (after copay), including comprehensive exams, eye glasses with standard single vision, lined bifocal or lined trifocal lenses, standard scratch-resistant coating and frames or contacts in lieu of eye glasses.
