New: MetLife Dental and EyeMed Vision Option

February 17, 2021

If you are enrolled in the MetLife dental plan, you have a new vision benefit in 2021. One election provides you with both dental and vision coverage. Your new EyeMed vision coverage includes an eye examination, frame, and prescription lenses or medically necessary contact lenses once every other calendar year.

Each time you need vision care, you decide whether to use an in-network or out-of-network provider; however, you’ll always pay less with an in-network provider. For most in-network services, including eye exams, most lenses and frames, you pay nothing—a $0 copay—when you need care. To find an in-network provider, visit and select the Insight network. If you haven’t received your ID card in the mail, you can print one by logging in to or download the EyeMed member app though the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Visit the MetLife Dental and EyeMed Vision Option page for more information.

Reminder: You must be enrolled in the HOP Medical or the Value Medical Plan to be eligible for the EyeMed vision option. It is not available on a stand-alone basis or with a Medicare Advantage plan.
