LASIK and Contact Lens Discounts

Health-plan members may benefit from discounts on LASIK vision correction services and mail-order contact lenses through the LASIK Affinity Program. We offer our members this program through TruVision, a national organization that contracts with experienced ophthalmologists to provide discounts on LASIK surgery and other vision services. There is no additional premium cost to members for this program.

This program may not apply to your group medical or vision plan. If you have any questions regarding this information, consult your benefit handbook, contact Customer Service at the toll-free number on your identification card, or e-mail Customer Service.

What Is LASIK?

LASIK is a surgical procedure to correct vision problems, such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. Laser vision correction has been used since the 1980s to successfully correct nearsightedness and astigmatism.

What Is My Cost?

The discounted cost of LASIK services, including a pre-operative vision exam, the surgery itself and post-operative care, starts at $895 per eye. Financing is available to patients for 100 percent of the cost upon approved credit. A fully refundable deposit is required when booking your procedure.

How Do I Find a Provider?

Members may call 1-877-763-2020 toll free to locate a participating provider. Currently, providers are located in Little Rock, Springdale and Memphis. TruVision contracts with board-certified ophthalmologists using only FDA-approved equipment.

Is LASIK Right for Me?

LASIK offers quick visual recovery, low risk of discomfort after surgery, low risk of infection and effective treatment for a wide range of vision deficiencies. LASIK, however, does not correct all vision deficiencies. Since not everyone is a candidate for LASIK surgery, a series of pre-operative screening questions and a physician examination will determine who is eligible for treatment. Members may call 1-877-763-2020 and be screened to determine initial eligibility.

How Do I Obtain a Discount on Contacts?

TruVision also offers contact lenses. Contact lens wearers may order discounted contacts through a toll-free number, 1-877-763-2020, or TruVision's Web site, www.truvision.com, and have them shipped free of charge directly to their home.
