The University offers two vision plan options—the Basic Plan and the Enhanced Plan. Both plans are administered by EyeMed and pay benefits for eye examinations, prescription eyewear and contact lenses.
Under both plans, you can see a provider in the EyeMed Insight network or an out-of-network provider. However, you’ll always pay more for out-of-network services.

Finding a Provider
To find a provider, go to eyemed.com and select Find an eye doctor. Then, in the Network drop-down box, choose the Insight Network. You can search by location or doctor name.
Walmart providers are also considered to be in-network providers; however, they will not show up in the Insight network search.
For assistance on the go, download the EyeMed Members App. For assistance with LASIK, call 800.988.4221.
You don’t need an ID card to use your vision benefits—just let the provider know you have EyeMed coverage when you get to your appointment.
