Vision Care

You are here

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The control code for Lehigh's DavisVision benefit has changed. The new control code is 5167.

The Davis Vision program is part of each medical plan offered by Lehigh. When you elect medical insurance coverage, you are automatically enrolled in Davis Vision as well.

Davis Vision has over 23,400 vision care providers and optical supplier locations across the United States. There are over 2,000 providers and suppliers in Pennsylvania, with more than 141 in the Lehigh Valley area.

Annual Benefits

The vision plan provides a benefit for an exam and lenses and frames on a yearly basis. You have the freedom to see any vision provider you choose, but the plan generally covers services at a higher level when you receive care from doctors who participate in the Davis Vision network. If you decide to go to an out-of-network provider, you’ll be reimbursed for exams and eyewear according to the schedule of benefits.

Please refer to the coverage chart in the Flexible Benefits Enrollment and Reference Guide for more details.

Beyond Annual Benefits

You and your covered family members may receive any of the covered services and products as needed (more often than once every 12 months) if you use network providers or suppliers for all materials and services. When a network provider or supplier is used for such additional covered services or supplies, you will receive a 20 percent discount off of the provider’s standard charge.  You are then responsible for the remaining cost.

Important Note About Contact Lenses and Glasses

If you and/or your covered family members wear both contact lenses and glasses, only one will be covered at the in-network benefit level each year. A courtesy discount will be applied to the other if a network provider or supplier is used for all materials and services. For courtesy discount information, contact Davis Vision at 800-999-5431.
