Don’t lose sight of your vision benefits

June 07, 2021

older-woman-getting-eye-examState of Texas VisionSM participants: Have you used your Plan Year 2021 benefits? If your benefits enrollment period is in the summer, your PY21 benefits expire August 31. If you’re a Medicare eligible participant and you decide not to continue your coverage at Fall Enrollment, you have until December 31 to use any unused benefits.

Good eye health is about more than clear vision: An eye exam can detect signs of medical problems such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. State of Texas Vision participants can get a comprehensive eye exam every plan year for a $15 copay. Benefits also include a $200 allowance per plan year for contact lenses or eyeglass frames (eyeglass lenses from network providers are covered after a copay).
Don’t need new glasses? Consider using your frame allowance to buy prescription sunglasses.

Convenient online options

The State of Texas Vision provider network includes leading online retailers that make it easy to purchase glasses or contacts and apply your vision benefits to your order.

Visit the State of Texas Vision webpage for detailed benefits information and a provider search tool, or to log in to your State of Texas Vision account. You can also call Superior Vision Customer Service at (877) 396-4128 with questions about your benefits.
