Answers to your questions
Questions? We have answers! Here are your most frequent vision questions.
Q: How do I receive vision care?
A: You can go to any licensed eye care professional or choose from the thousands of ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians at private practices or popular retail locations such as Pearle Vision, Visionworks, and more.
For additional convenience, a special service arrangement with WalMart and Sam's Club makes it easy for you to use your benefits even though they are out-of-network. They check your eligibility and process claims so there is less paperwork for you.
When at the appointment, use the employee's social security number as the member ID. Regardless of which family member is receiving care, use the policy-holding employee's SSN.
Q: How do I find an in-network provider?
A: To locate an in-network provider, log in to your account at clients.nextep.com, go to Apps, and click the Vision app. Or, call MetLife at 1-855-MET-EYE1. Members should verify their providers are currently in MetLife's network when making appointments.
Q: How do I get out-of-network care?
A: Out-of-network providers are not bound to the negotiated in-network cost, but our plan does allow generous reimbursements for select out-of-network services. To submit a claim for reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs, visit your Vision app.
