Health Insurance & Vision Plans

Health and vision plans are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The AOA has assessed and consolidated the information coming from plans and is continually updating the information as plans' procedures are ever-changing during this time of public emergency. To ensure doctors have the most up-to-date information on a specific plan, they should use these resources and follow the provided links to the plans' respective COVID-19 response pages.

Doctors of optometry or their offices can contact Rodney Peele or Adam Greathouse in AOA's Third Party Center with plan questions and issues.
