- What is Outlook Vision Services?
Outlook Vision is a discount program for eyewear, it is not vision insurance. Outlook members purchase eyewear at participating providers and receive an average discount from 10% to 50% off their purchase. Discounts are also available on eye examinations and vision correction surgery in selected areas, where approved. Members pay for the eyewear/services at the time of purchase.
- How can I become an Outlook Vision Member?
Outlook Vision Services is offered by employers, insurance companies, associations as well as other institutions. However, if you wish to become an Outlook Vision member and this benefit is not offered at your place of employment, you may contact Outlook Vision directly by calling the toll free number, 1-800-342-7188. For faster service you may enroll by phone using a Mastercard, Visa or Discover Card.
- Is the membership for individual or family?
The entire immediate family (family dependents) is covered by one single membership card that is issued to the member.
- Do I have to file a claim form?
No. With Outlook Vision you receive a discount from the provider at the time of purchase. However, Outlook may be combined with some insured plans that reimburse the employee for their eyewear purchase. Use the Outlook Vision membership card and then file a claim for the remaining balance. Please check with your insurance and/or employer for eligibility and benefits.
