MedPlus Vision Coverage

MedPlus Includes Routine Vision Coverage

Did you know that vision exams can serve as a window into your overall health? Annual eye exams not only detect eye diseases like cataracts and glaucoma; they can also provide early detection of other diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis and high blood pressure.

That’s one of the reasons why WEA-MedPlus provides routine vision benefits via the National Vision Administrators (NVA). As a MedPlus member, you will have coverage for routine vision exams and vision correction materials, such as lenses, frames and contacts.

If you choose to get your services from a non-network provider, you may download and fill out this claim form in order to get reimbursement.

Frequently Asked Questions


MedPlus Vision

Q:Where can I get prescription eyeglasses?

We recommend you select an in-network NVA vision retailer because you will get the best reimbursement.

 You can find one near you at or by calling 877.262.7915. We also recommend seeing an eye care provider in the NVA vision network.

Q:What happens if I already have vision coverage through another carrier?

Routine vision coverage is included in MedPlus; it is not optional. If you choose to keep your other vision plan, remember to bring both your vision ID Card and your WEA Trust ID Card with you to your eye care provider. Your provider will coordinate your benefits.

Q:What should I do at my next vision appointment?

If you see an NVA Network provider for your next routine vision exam, let them know you have NVA insurance effective January 1. Show them your new WEA Trust ID Card, which you will receive in December. Your provider should verify your eligibility and handle sending claims to NVA.   

If you see a vision provider that is not in the NVA Network, you must pay the entire cost of the service at the time of service, and then submit a completed claim form to NVA for processing.  You can request a claim form from NVA or print one off here.

Q:Do I have any out-of-pocket costs for vision services?

When you see a Network provider, you will have a $10 copay for your vision exam and standard corrective eyeglass lenses, although additional fees for lens options will apply. We will also reimburse up to $125 for frames or up to $125 for contacts in lieu of eyeglasses.

Reimbursement amounts will be lower when you see a non-network provider. Please review your Benefit Summary for more details on your out-of-pocket costs.
