Warby Parker Now Accepting Vision Insurance Enabling Millions To Purchase Prescription Eyewear for Copay

Dave Gilboa, co-founder and co-CEO of Warby Parker stated, “Warby Parker is constantly exploring new ways to provide people access to affordable, high-quality and fashionable eyewear. We look forward to working with UnitedHealthcare, nationwide, to enable millions of Americans to purchase their eyewear at a fraction of the price they might pay through traditional channels.”  Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. Every idea starts with a problem. Theirs was simple: glasses are too expensive. By circumventing traditional channels, designing glasses in-house, and engaging with customers directly, they’re able to provide higher-quality, better-looking prescription eyewear starting at $95 (a fraction of the going price). Warby Parker also believes that everyone has the right to see. Almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, which means that 15% of the world’s population cannot effectively learn or work. To help address this problem, Warby Parker partners with non-profits like VisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

As people now enter the open enrollment season for 2018 health benefits, this new relationship will help meet the eye-care needs for UnitedHealthcare plan participants nationwide.

Tom Wiffler, CEO, UnitedHealthcare Specialty Benefits stated, “Warby Parker and UnitedHealthcare will help more Americans access designer eyewear at affordable prices to help meet the eye-care needs of the people we serve. We are grateful Warby Parker selected UnitedHealthcare to be its first in-network vision plan.”UnitedHealthcare is dedicated to helping people nationwide live healthier lives by simplifying the health care experience, meeting consumer health and wellness needs, and sustaining trusted relationships with care providers.
