New Network Relationship with Warby Parker Features Affordable, Fashionable Prescription Eyewear

October 10, 2017

UnitedHealthcare Vision members enrolled in UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored and individual vision plans can access Warby Parker’s fashionable prescription eyewear for little or no out-of-pocket cost, online or at any of the more than 50 stores nationwide, beginning in 2018.1 This marks the first time Warby Parker is accepting vision insurance, and will enable millions of UnitedHealthcare Vision members to purchase prescription eyewear for only their copay.

As people now enter the open enrollment season for 2018 health benefits, this new relationship will help meet the eye-care needs for UnitedHealthcare Vision members nationwide.

Note that most Warby Parker locations do not provide vision exams. In many cases, UnitedHealthcare Vision members will need to see a separate in-network eye care provider to obtain an updated prescription before going to a Warby Parker location or to get eyewear.

For more information, contact your UnitedHealthcare representative.

1Not all UnitedHealthcare clients include vision plans and, therefore, not all will have access to Warby Parker online and in-store locations starting in 2018. Check with your UnitedHealthcare representative to determine if your client is enrolled in a UnitedHealthcare Vision plan and able to access Warby Parker on an in-network basis.
