Beginning January 1, 2014, as part of the IU PPO medical plans (HDHP, $900 Deductible, $500 Deductible), the annual eye exam coverage will be converted from a medical benefit to a separate Vision benefit administered by Anthem Blue View Vision. Those enrolled in an IU medical plan will receive the vision benefit with no separate enrollment.
- A routine eye exam every 12 months, with a $10 copay.
- Frames, lenses and contacts covered with specific allowances and copays for in-network providers (see Vision Benefit Summary (PDF) for more specifics)
- In-network providers include the IU School of Optometry Eye Care Centers (Atwater Eye Care Center and Indianapolis Eye Care Center), LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears, Target, 1-800 Contacts, and other independent eye care professionals.
The Vision Wear Program (Voluntary Benefits Program) administered by EyeMed will be discontinued December 31, 2013.
Note: Medical eye exams, such as for treatment of glaucoma or retinal detachment, remain a covered benefit under medical plans; however, they will be subject to the medical plan deductible and co-insurance.
