Wisconsin Vision Eye Doctors Accept MetLife Vision Insurance

MetLife Vision Benefits
Wondering what MetLife vision benefits include, how much your frame allowance is, or whether sunglasses are covered?
The benefits available to you through your MetLife vision plan depend on the details of the plan you have.
In general, MetLife vision insurance usually covers the cost of an annual eye exam after a $10 copay, and part of the cost of glasses or contacts if you need vision correction.
You may also be entitled to discounts on prescription or non-prescription sunglasses, or additional pairs of eyeglasses under your MetLife vision plan.
MetLife Vision coverage for glasses
According to their website, MetLife Vision has a frame allowance (every 24 months) of $120 after you make a $20 copay. There’s a 20% discount for any amount you pay beyond your frame allowance.
MetLife Vision covers standard corrective lenses, which means single vision, lined bifocal, lined trifocal or lenticular. Lenses are covered every 12 months and there’s a $20 copay.
Standard lens enhancements like photochromic or progressive lenses, or coatings like anti-glare and scratch-resistant are covered every 12 months with a copay amount specific to your plan.
MetLive Vision coverage for contacts
According to their website, MetLife Vision covers contacts for vision correction instead of eyeglasses. Contact lens benefits include a yearly contact lens fitting, which can have a copay up to $60.
There’s also a $120 yearly allowance for elective contact lenses. Medically necessary contact lenses are covered in full with a $20 copay.
Does MetLife Vision cover sunglasses?
If you want to use your MetLife Vision benefits for prescription sunglasses instead of prescription eyeglasses, you can. But MetLife doesn’t cover non-prescription sunglasses.
However, once you’ve used your yearly benefits you may be eligible for discounts on additional products. When shopping at an in-network provider like Wisconsin Vision, MetLife Vision members may be able to get 20% off additional pairs or prescription glasses or sunglasses, including non-prescription sunglasses.

Is MetLife the same as VSP?
Nope! According to the MetLife website (here), some insurance claim and administration services are provided through VSP, but VSP isn’t affiliated with MetLife. Our eye doctors take VSP, MetLife vision insurance, and many other vision plans. We’ve got you covered!
