UnitedHealthcare vision expands its national lab network

UnitedHealthcare Vision is expanding to a national laboratory network to help better serve eye care professionals and more effectively meet the needs of more than 19 million vision plan members.

UnitedHealthcare intends for this change to be seamless for employers and employees, while providing additional lab options for eye care professionals.

To facilitate this expansion, Essilor of America will provide a national network of labs to network providers serving UnitedHealthcare vision members. As part of the agreement, UnitedHealthcare vision’s lab facility, Spectera Vision Laboratory, was purchased by Essilor of America and will be added to the Essilor Lab Network.

There will be no immediate changes for network eye care professionals serving UnitedHealthcare vision members. There are also no changes anticipated for employers or employees with UnitedHealthcare vision plans.  

Additional details on the lab network launch will be communicated later this year. For questions, contact your UnitedHealthcare representative.
