Why choose SafeGuard Vision
For more than 30 years, SafeGuard has provided vision benefits to people like you. SafeGuard’s network of vision care providers are required to meet high standards set by SafeGuard, the State of California and the vision care industry. We check each provider’s background and licenses before they take part in the SafeGuard program and we recheck every three (3) years. At SafeGuard, our members are our first priority.
How the Plan Works
- The plan provides a benefit toward an eye exam, new lenses and new frames or contact lenses once a year. SafeGuard has a vision network of many eye care providers in California.
- This network includes providers at many of the locations you visit regularly like Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, and JC Penney.
- You do not have to select a provider at enrollment. To make an appointment, just call the vision care provider of your choice and let them know you have SafeGuard vision coverage. You may also see a vision care provider that is not in the SafeGuard network, although the amount you pay for your care may be higher.
- If you receive care from a non-network provider, you will have to file a claim with SafeGuard. See Schedule of Benefits for details. You are responsible for the charges above the reimbursement amount.
Full plan information is included in your Schedule of Benefits, and Customer Services Representatives are available to help with your questions.
