CountyCare Vision Benefits

CountyCare offers vision benefits to all our members. We have a large network of providers and offer free exams. You also have a choice between glasses and contacts lenses.  With CountyCare, you get:

  • One eye exam from our network of optometrists and ophthalmologists every year.
  • Your choice from our standard selection of frames; or you can choose a $100 allowance toward the retail value of frames. If the frames cost more than $100, you are responsible to pay for the difference in price. You are eligible for new glasses every 2 years.
  • If certain prescription requirements are met, single vision and bifocal lenses for your glasses are fully covered.
  • You can choose contact lenses instead of eye glasses. The fitting fee is fully covered, and you get a $100 allowance toward the cost of your contact lenses. If the cost of your contact lenses is above $100, you are responsible to pay for the difference in price. You are eligible for the contact lens benefit every 2 years.

Finding Your Eye Doctor

You must use an in-network vision provider. To find a vision provider, click here or call CountyCare Member Services at 312-864-8200 / 855-444-1661 (toll-free) / 711 (TDD/TTY). .

Vision for Kids

When you take your child to their pediatrician for a routine check-up, the doctor or nurse will test their vision. If you or your child’s doctor have any concerns about your child’s vision you can take them to an eye doctor. Children receive the same vision benefits as adults.
