Occupational Benefit (Member Only)

The Gold Vision Care Plan includes the Occupational Benefit and is available to members only. The occupational benefit entitles the member to an occupational eye exam, which may result in the member being prescribed two pairs of glasses, a dress pair and one to be used for work. To receive occupational glasses the prescription must be different than the dress pair or include a tint. The exception to this rule is that members who drive will be entitled to a prescription pair of sunglasses even if the prescription is the same as their regular glasses. The Participating Provider makes the determination whether the occupational pair is warranted. This option may be purchased separately under the Platinum Plan.
