Wake Forest offers a voluntary vision plan that provides coverage for lenses, frames, and contact lenses through Superior Vision.
Eye exam coverage is available through the medical plan.
*If you are enrolled in both the Superior Vision and Aetna Medical plan, it is recommended that you verify your provider is in-network with both plans prior to your appointment either by visiting their website or calling:
Covered in full (single vision, bifocals, trifocals) after $15 copay
$150 retail allowance – Contact lenses are in lieu of eyeglass lenses and frames benefit
Medically Necessary Contact lenses – Covered in full (in-network) — $210 if out of network
*Lens and frame allowances are tied to a rolling calendar year based on the last date of service (i.e. not on a calendar year).
Every 24 months:
Covered up to $175 retail allowance (every 24 months) in-network
