Effective on and after October 1, 2018, the Health Plan eliminated NVA as the vision insurance carrier. Alternatively, the Health Plan implemented a direct reimbursement to the participant for the eligible vision expenses.
In order to receive the reimbursement, simply complete the Vision Reimbursement Form and submit it, along with itemized receipts, to Wilson-McShane Corporation (a copy of the Vision Reimbursement Claim Form is included for your convenience).
As a reminder, the schedule of vision benefits (up to $200 per calendar year) was not changed. The benefits remain the same.
The only difference now is the process by which you receive reimbursement:
- You and your eligible dependents are able to choose any vision provider you wish.
- You will need to pay up front for any costs you incurred (lenses, frames, contacts, etc.) at the vision provider.
- Once you have paid you will receive an itemized receipt from the provider.
- The itemized receipt is required to receive your reimbursement.
Should you have any questions with this, feel free to contact Wilson-McShane Corporation at 952-851-5948.
