Vision Plan

The UnitedHealthcare Vision Plan provides you and your family with quality vision benefits at an affordable cost.

Your UnitedHealthcare vision plan makes it easy to maintain good eyesight and healthy eyes, and save money while you are at it. Your plan offers you the flexibility to use any provider you choose, but typically the best overall savings are available at network locations. Visiting a network location also gives you the opportunity to take advantage of eyewear discounts on options like lens upgrades. Your vision plan allows you to pick the provider that matches your lifestyle and eye care needs.

UnitedHealthcare offers a diverse vision network of more than 60,000 access points nationally. This includes both private practice and leading retail chain providers including: Costco, Walmart, Sam’s Club, American’s Best Contacts, EyeGlass World, Visionworks, Nationwide and many more.

When you call to schedule an appointment with our vision network provider, simply tell them that you have vision insurance with UnitedHealthcare. You don’t even need a vision ID card for your appointment. You only need to give the staff your name and date of birth—it’s that simple!

The network provider will verify your benefits. If you’d like to print a vision ID card, visit, log on, and choose “Print ID Card.” This will generate a PDF document called “How to Use Your Vision Care Benefits.” More...
