Now available through the Preferred Vision Services (PVS) network – plan members have access to savings on prescription eyewear purchased online and laser eye surgery. 

What is PVS?

PVS is a network of over 1000 participating vision service providers across the country, offering discounts on prescription eyewear products and laser eye correction surgery. Plan members may not be aware that PVS is available to all our plan sponsors and plan members as part of our Extended Health Care (EHC) benefit. Even if your plan does not include vision care, PVS can help your plan members save on prescription eyewear products and laser eye correction costs.

How does PVS work?        

By creating a network of providers, PVS is able to arrange significant discounts for your plan members and their vision needs. Plan members have access to discounts and providers by accessing the PVS website or by calling 1-800-668-6444. They can also search for a provider nearest them or link directly to the approved online providers.

How do plan members get the discount?

If your plan has an EHC benefit, your members are eligible for PVS discounts through the preferred provider network. They just have to provide their Coverage Card or Drug Card at the point of purchase as proof of coverage. It’s that easy!

Why should plan members use it?

Plan members can receive up to 20% off the cost of prescription eyewear and 10% off the cost of laser eye surgery. This not only saves them money, but it reduces the total cost of the claim submitted.

Here’s a communication you can share with your plan members to let them know how to use the PVS network.
