Your benefits allow one eye exam every 12 months, prescription eyeglass lenses or contact lenses every 12 months, and an eyeglass frame once every 24 months. If you like to switch between prescription glasses and contacts, it works well to get eyeglasses one year, and contacts the next year.
Some vision providers can bill Ameritas for you. However, if they cannot, pay the bill, get your itemized invoice, complete the claim form, and mail it all to Ameritas for reimbursement.
Be sure to get your annual eye exam for a healthier you.
