The MetLife vision plan provides coverage for an exam plus either frames or contacts. If you see an in-network provider, you pay a copay for your eye exam. The plan pays a benefit of up to $200 for frames or contact lenses. Additional copays apply for eyeglass lens options.
With the MetLife vision plan, you may visit any vision provider. However in order to maximize your vision benefit, it is recommended you access participating providers by visiting www.metlife.com. Click “Find a Vision Provider” from the home page, follow the search instructions, and select the MetLife Vision - VSP Choice Network. When you visit a participating MetLife vision provider, you have a higher benefit, lower out-of-pocket costs, and receive the benefit at the time of service (no need to file claims). If you go out-of-network, you pay at the time of service and file a claim for reimbursement.
The vision plan has frequency limitations. The exam benefit, lens benefit, and frame benefit are once per 12 months. Either frames or contacts may be purchased in the same benefit period. Please refer to the Benefits Summary below for complete details.
