Vision Care

Cigna Vision Exam Coverage

The Cigna Vision benefit provides coverage for vision exams only. Eye exams are covered at no cost for in-network eye doctors (use Cigna Vision Directory to verify providers). Out-of-network eye exams will be reimbursed up to $75. To find an in-network provider, use the Cigna Vision Directory.

There is no Cigna reimbursement for glasses or contacts; however, the voluntary EyeMed Vision plan is available (see below).

Premiums for this benefit are covered under your medical plan.
