Vision benefits are an easy way for you and your dependents to maintain healthy vision and eyes. All Texas Employees Group Benefit Program (GBP) health plans cover an annual eye exam and the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and injuries. Most health plans do not cover the cost of eyeglasses or contacts. Review your health plan’s covered services for details. State of Texas VisionSM, administered by Superior Vision Services, Inc., offers more complete vision coverage to help you save money on eye exams and eyewear.
- Access to more than 90,000 providers nationwide in the Superior Vision network, including the top 50 optical retail chains
- Low copays for annual exams
- 24/7 access to provider and account information online and through the Superior Vision mobile app
