have an eye infection or have injured my eyes?
No. The vision care benefit covers only
eye examinations, corrective eyewear and LASIK/PRK.
Services related to medical or surgical treatment
of eye disease or injury are not covered under Davis Vision.
Contact a United Healthcare medical provider for services related to conditions and injuries to the eyes.
Where can I go for a vision exam?
Log into the website at www.DavisVision.com/Member and select Find a Provider, or call (800) 999-5431.
What if my current provider is not in the Davis network?
Davis Vision contracts with an extensive network of providers in the marketplace. Please note that Lenscrafters does not participate in the Davis Vision plan. However, Visionworks, with locations throughout Pinellas County, is available through Davis Vision, in addition to many other providers. If your current provider is not in their network, you may select a new provider or use the out-of-network reimbursement option.
How often may I have a vision exam?
You are entitled to a basic comprehensive vision
exam once per calendar year for a $10 copay.
How often may I purchase
Eyeglass lenses and frames may be purchased once per calendar year.
Can I get vision services if I am out
Yes. Davis Vision is a nationwide program.
To locate a provider, log into the website at www.DavisVision.com/Member and select Find a Provider or call (800) 999-5431.
Will I have to pay more than a $20
copay when I purchase eyeglasses?
Clear plastic lenses are covered under the $20
copay including single vision, bifocal, trifocal or lenticular lenses. Progressive and transitional lenses
have a higher price, and you would have to
pay the difference over the allowance at a preferred
pricing rate or a flat copay if using Davis Vision materials.
The plan offers a frame allowance
up to $110 retail. If you select a frame over
$110, then the amount over $110 would be discounted
If you purchase a Davis Vision Collection Frame there is no cost for the Fashion and Designer frames and a $25 copay for the Premium frames.
May I purchase extra features such as scratch
resistant coating or tinting?
Yes, but there is no cost for these features if your provider uses Davis Vision materials. The cost will vary if you receive services at other providers which use their own labs.
Will my contact fitting fee be covered?
Yes. Contact fitting is free of charge for Davis Vision Collection standard soft contacts. There is a $60 allowance plus 15% off the balance for specialty contacts.
May I use my vision benefit to purchase both eyeglasses and contacts?
No. You may purchase either eyeglasses or contacts in lieu of eyeglasses during the calendar year.
