Vision Insurance [download 2017 informational flyer with rates]

Offering a vision plan not only promotes good vision health, but may also reduce total healthcare costs over time. A thorough eye health exam can help prevent vision loss and also detect more serious diseases. Humana vision plans encourage prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment.

Here’s how it works:

  • Offer a Humana vision plan at little or no additional cost to your benefits budget.
  • Your employees get significant discounts (wholesale pricing) no matter which in-network provider they choose. Plus, they’ll receive discounts on Lasik procedures.
  • There are lots of frame choices with access to exclusive lines of designer frames such as Ralph Lauren,® Dolce&Gabbana, Oakley,® Prada, and Ray-Ban® . 
  • Your employees can take care of eye exams and frames all in one visit.
  • Many locations offer night and weekend appointments to fit their schedules.
