BCBSNM Vision Plan Transitions to EyeMed
Effective Jan. 1, 2017, The administration of vision benefits, including the network of contracted vision providers, for some Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) members will transition from Davis Vision to EyeMed Vision Care . This transition applies to BCBSNM members with the voluntary plan (premier or preferred), pediatric members (in individual, small group and student health markets) and Blue Cross Medicare AdvantageSM members. This transition does not apply to Blue Cross Community CentennialSM members; whose vision benefits remain administered by Davis Vision.
In November, we sent letters to affected members notifying them of the new vision vendor. With EyeMed Vision Care, the member also receives discounts on eyewear materials in addition to the funded benefit. Should you have any questions regarding this transition, please contact your BCBSNM Provider Network Representative.
As always, prior to furnishing vision care services to, or making vision care referrals for, any BCBSNM member, you should contact the customer service number on the back of the member’s ID card to verify the member’s vision benefits and related vision provider network.
Categories of BCBSNM members who are not described above may not have vision benefits from BCBSNM. Contact the customer service number on the back of the member’s ID card to verify the member’s vision benefits.
