Frequently Asked Questions
Does the employer need to sign up in order for employees to get the savings? Yes. The program is designed to help small businesses provide benefits to their employees in order to help attract and retain good people.
Do all employees have to participate? No. Participation is strictly voluntary. One person can use the program or everyone can.
What is the enrollment process? The employer submits an enrollment form that lets Vision Source® know who to contact and how many employees are interested in participating. Once that information is received, Vision Source® will send membership cards to the employer and asks that the employer distribute them accordingly.
How does a Vision Source® office know a new patient is a 20/20 participant? The employee simply presents the membership card previously distributed by the employer at the time of the visit and this information is then entered into his or her permanent office record.
What about family members? Everyone in the immediate family living at home - and students - are eligible.
Are employees restricted to a particular Vision Source® office? Not at all. Employees and their participating family members can choose any Vision Source® office that offers the 20/20 Savings Program.
What if an employee leaves the company? If the new company doesn't have vision coverage, Vision Source® will be happy to sign them up.
Does payment have to be made at the time of service in order to get the 20/20 benefit? Yes, payment is expected at the time of the visit.
How does the program interact with other insurance coverage? Discounts do not replace individual health care insurance. If participants do have coverage for services or products, those rates will apply. Our program will be applied only to non-insured products and services not included in your insurance plan.
What reductions are offered? Participants in the program get a 20% reduction in the usual and customary fees related to eye exams and other general eye care needs; a 20% reduction in the usual cost of frames, lenses, and special features; and preferred pricing on contact lenses (actual cost reduction varies by participating practice). All are offered as a reduction in fees for payment at time of service and cannot be combined with other offers made by the individual Vision Source® office.
What about the cost of laser correction consultations? The 20/20 benefits may apply to laser correction consultation, depending upon the participating office. This is also true for vision training and other special services.
Are the services and their costs uniform throughout Vision Source®? No. There are over 3,200 Vision Source® offices nationwide and each office is independently owned and operated. Therefore, services and charges will vary.
Does Vision Source® inflate its fees in order to cover the 20/20 Savings Program? Absolutely not. The reduction is taken directly from the office's standard rates as a way of saying "thank you" to those participating in the program.
