Vision Care Benefits

COBANC offers vision benefits through four different networks. The choice of network is yours. Out-of-Network vision care benefits will be paid according to the schedule listed in your benefit book.

The first time you or your covered dependent visits a vision care provider, they will verify your eligibility within the network they belong to. Our claims processor, Healthplex, makes every effort to provide your eligibility to these networks in advance, but there are various reasons your information may not be in their records. For this reason, it is recommended that you ask the provider to verify your eligibility in advance of your first visit.
