New Vision/Orthotic Benefit Information

Posted on November 30, 2015

OVERVIEW OF THE VISION VOUCHER VS. VISION REIMBURSEMENT CLAIM BENEFIT FORM

To obtain your Vision Benefits, the Vision Voucher must be presented to a participating optical center – Comprehensive Professional Systems, Inc., General Vision Services (GVS), or Vision Screening – at the time of your appointment. The voucher is not transferrable and is only valid to Local 764 members in good standing.  *Please note that the voucher will not be honored unless it is signed by a designated Local 764 representative.

The alternative option the Union will provide is reimbursement through the Optical Reimbursement Program.  This program entitles members in good standing to reimbursement of up to $100 (one hundred dollars) for covered services.  This program is INSTEAD of using the vision voucher and is a benefit for members in good standing only.  The claim form along with the originals of the bill and proof of payment, must be submitted to the Local 764 office no later than 90 (ninety) days after the date of service. If you used the voucher, you cannot use the reimbursement claim form.

To request the Vision Voucher or the Vision Reimbursement Claim Form, please either contact Catherine Halpin or Margaret LaBombard at the Local 764 office, 212-957-3500, or email your request at chalpin@ia764.org and mlabombard@ia764.org.

*Please note that each member in good standing will be eligible to receive vision benefit services every calendar year.
