Management Benefits Fund
Vision Benefits


The Fund Vision Care Plan provides two options: an Out-of-Network Indemnity Option, and an In-Network Participating Provider Option, called a PPO.

Indemnity Option
Under the Indemnity Option, the member may select a provider of his/her choice and will be reimbursed 100% of the first $25 incurred and then 80% of the excess, subject to an annual maximum reimbursement of $150. An annual benefit for eye examination and lenses and a bi-annual benefit for frames is available under the Indemnity Option.

PPO Option
The PPO Option provides for the accessing of services through a nationwide panel of providers. An annual eye examination, lenses (including progressive, no-line bi-focals), contact lenses, and plan frames are provided at no member cost under the PPO option.

The benefit year runs from January 1st through December 31st and once an option is selected, it may not be changed during that benefit year.

For questions on vision care claims, members can contact Davis Vision, the Vision Care Administrator, at (800) 828-6100 or (800) 999-5431.

Please refer to the Fund Booklet for complete details on the Fund's Vision Care benefit.

Vision Care PPO
The Management Benefits Fund (MBF) does not recommend or endorse any particular provider. It is important to understand that you are responsible for selecting the provider of your choice, participating or non-participating, and you should exercise the same care and apply the same criteria in selecting a participating provider that you would in selecting a non-participating provider.

Be sure to identify yourself as an eligible member of the Management Benefits Fund and confirm that the provider is an MBF participating provider.
