VSP, EyeMed, and Other Vision Plans and Insurances

vsp-vs-lep-breakdown

Daas Optique works with Vision Service Plan (VSP), EyeMed Vision Care, Medical Eye Services (MES) and other vision plans. We do this in a unique way that provides the best care, product, service, and price to you. If you have any of these plans, you are automatically eligible for our Luxury Eyewear Plan (LEP) to match your benefits.

First, let’s clear up one myth – there is no such thing as eyewear ‘insurance.’ While these vision plans try to describe themselves as being an ‘insurance,’ notice that none of them actually have the word insurance in their names. That’s because they are simply group discount plans. They are not insuring their members but simply providing cheap products and services at ‘discounted’ prices. Providers of vision plans act as a middleman between the client and the plan, and the lenses are processed by the ‘insurance’ lab (lower quality and slower turn around – think Medicaid).

Unlike other vision plans, the Luxury Eyewear Plan allows you to get a unique selection of exclusive and high quality frame brands with lenses made by the world’s best lens manufacturers. They are processed and edged using state of the art equipment by highly trained lab masters, enabling you to receive the private pay quality your eyes and your luxury frames deserve.

If you already have another vision plan such as VSP or EyeMed, the Luxury Eyewear Plan will allow you to combine our benefits with theirs. This way, while you get the highest quality lenses and craftsmanship by going through our private lab, your out of pocket expenses are approximately the same as going in-network with the standard most common vision plans, such as VSP’s Signature plan.

Here’s how it works when you purchase a complete frame with prescription lenses from Daas Optique combining your vision plan with our LEP:

    – Copay: Waived
    – Frame: $100 off plus 20% off remainder
    – Lens Package: 20% off
    – Out-Of-Network Frame Reimbursement: $50+
    – Out-Of-Network Single Vision Lens Reimbursement: $50+
    – Out-Of-Network Progressive Lens Reimbursement: $100+
    – Additional pairs: 20% off 2nd pair and beyond
    – Frame OR Rx ONLY: 20% off

The best part is that filing for your Out-of-Network reimbursement is as easy as dropping off your invoice in the mail – we provide you with everything and the vision plans typically get your check to you within 1-2 weeks.

There are additional tips and tricks to save even more. E.g. If you wear contact lenses, instead of submitting for your $100 reimbursement, you can use your vision plan benefit towards your contacts purchase with a provider and get $130-$150 off instead. This way you save more and double up your benefits. Our staff can review your situation to work out the best way for you to maximize your savings.
