About Your Benefits

State Employee Health Plan Vision Insurance is provided by Avēsis.

Avēsis is a leading managed vision insurance company. Providing outstanding customer service has been a top priority for more than 40 years, and our core values help us deliver innovative and valued benefit programs to our members. A strong provider network, a user-friendly website for member self-service, and mail order and LASIK benefits make this a plan you can keep. Don’t lose sight of all the good when you can see it with Avēsis. 

In order to offer Avēsis eye care members the broadest most versatile provider network to meet their ocular health needs, national and regional retail chains are included in our provider network. Please note, that our agreements with these providers are limited to their “brick and mortar” locations and do not include any online or mobile app presence. Members with questions should log in to the Avēsis member portal to view their full provider network. When purchasing contact lenses online by mail order, benefits will be provided at non-network levels. To access the network level of benefits for contact lenses, you should purchase them directly through a network provider’s office.

  • View benefit summaries and eligibility – your full range of benefits at your fingertips

  • Search for providers – by mile radius, provider name, city, state, gender, and more
