United Health Care (UHC) vision insurance covers most vision expenses, offers paperwork-free vision benefits and has features such as frame allowance, optional covered-in-full contact lenses and glass lenses with standard scratch-resistant coating. Members get an annual eye exam cover, glasses and frames as part of their coverage, notes United Health Care.
Any pair of glasses purchased from a network provider includes a cover scratch-resistant lens coating for free, and the company covers select lens purchases in full. The latter coverage includes the initial fitting evaluation and up to two follow-up visits.
Subscribers to this vision program enjoy an expansive national network of up to 50,000 network providers. This includes both retail chain locations and private practices. The variety of network providers gives the policyholder the flexibility of choosing an eye doctor who suits his preferences for eye care and eyewear needs. These vision plans offer both cost savings and the freedom of choice for eyewear, states UHOne.com.
United Health Care vision insurance benefits feature an option of replacement eyeglass lenses every year and eyeglass frames within the two-year allowance period. Members can also select contact lenses every year other than glasses. There is also a 24/7 convenient customer care network in which policyholders can consult with company agents and have access to vision insurance information.
