Additional Vision Benefit

If you have SHBP as your medical plan, one eye examination (per person) can be received every 24 months from an In-network healthcare provider’s office at no cost.

Contact Lens Benefit

Contact lens benefit covers in-full (after applicable copay) the fitting/evaluation fees, contacts (disposable contacts/up to 6 boxes, depending on prescription), and up to 2 follow up visits. A $150 allowance is applied toward the fitting/evaluation fees and purchase of contact lenses outside of UHC’s covered-in-full contacts (materials copay does not apply). Toric, gas permeable, and bifocal contacts are all examples of contacts that are outside of our covered-in-full selection.

In and Out of Network Payments

Network Benefits – Exam and materials copays and patient options are paid to the network provider by the plan participant.

Out-of-Network Benefits – The plan participant pays full fee to the provider and UHC reimburses the participant for services rendered up to a maximum allowance. There are no copays or deductibles.
