Provider Manual has the latest information about plans
Our most recent revision to the Provider Manual has been published on our communications portal, inFocus, this week. The updates mostly reflect details about EyeMed clients, including:
- The newest Johnson & Johnson (J&J) MSRP price list, which applies to the J&J Vision Plan.
- Details about Los Angeles Airport Police Officers Association benefits for sunglasses.
- A new section for Summit Community Care in Arkansas and updates to clarify the different requirements for state-mandated Medicaid programs.
We also made small updates to our compliance and quality assurance policies to make sure they align with all applicable regulations.
Be sure you have the latest Provide Manual on file at your practice to make sure you’re not missing out on any guidelines. It’s available any time (and searchable) on inFocus.

Search for discounts by group name or group ID Members aren’t always going to understand the difference between a discount plan and one with copays and allowances. But they know they want to receive the savings they’re due on eye exams and materials.
If you try to look up a patient using the Member Search and get no results, try asking the name of their employer or plan sponsor.
You can then use the Group Search to search by Group Name or Group ID in the online claims system to see if they might have a discount plan. If so, you can view the plan details, which list out exactly how much the member should pay. Then apply the discounts to the patient’s transaction (no claim is needed).
Remember, you can order eyewear through EyeMed’s lab network if you wish.
