What is a Vision Preferred Provider Organization plan?
With the Vision Preferred Provider Organization plan (PPO) through Cigna, you and your family members have access to quality vision care. We offer one of the largest specialty networks1 of optometrists, ophthalmologists and nationally recognized eye care retailers so you'll have plenty of choices. You'll save the most money when you choose an in-network eye care provider.
If you choose the Preferred Provider Organization Vision plan through Cigna, it's important to know you can:
- Find and use an in-network eye care provider near you. You can easily search the Cigna Vision Directory to find in-network eye care providers. Please be aware that the Cigna Vision PPO network is separate from the network that is related to Cigna medical plans.
- Pay a copay at the time of service for in-network services, including any amount over the Vision PPO plan's allowance for materials (e.g., eyeglass frames and contact lenses) when the plan covers materials. There is no paperwork for you when you use in-network providers.
- You pay the full cost of out-of-network care when you get the service. You will need to submit a claim form and itemized receipt for reimbursement of any amount the Vision PPO plan covers. You save money when you use in-network providers.
