How to claim vision insurance benefits with Coastal

1. Place your order 

Choose your glasses, sunglasses, or contact lenses, enter your prescription, and head through the checkout.

2. Wait for your receipt  

Once your glasses or contacts have shipped, we’ll email you a receipt. You can also find this receipt in your MyAccount. You’ll need it to submit a claim to your provider.  

Please note – this will only be sent after your eyewear has shipped. The confirmation email you get right after you’ve ordered online isn’t acceptable proof of purchase for most providers.

The process for this will vary, depending on your provider. Typically, when you submit a claim online, you’ll need to: 

  • Log into your insurance dashboard 
  • Fill in the submission form and attach a copy of your invoice.

What does vision insurance cover?

  • Prescription glasses (and sometimes blue light glasses) 
  • Prescription sunglasses 
  • Contact lenses 
  • A comprehensive eye exam 

Always check with your provider before making a purchase, so you know how to stretch your benefits as far as you can! 

Can I get covered by two vision benefit plans? 

If you are in the United States and you have more than one vision insurance plan, you have dual coverage, or double insurance. The primary provider will pay first, while the other will pay second to cover the excess. 

  • In general, if you and your spouse both have vision coverage through your employers’ group plans, your own plan will be your primary provider and your spouse’s plan will be secondary. 
  • If an American student is covered under multiple plans through their parents’ providers, your primary plan will belong to your parent whose birthday comes first in the calendar year. 

To help you with understanding your plan details better, make sure to read the section related to “coordination of benefits” in your insurance plan or check with your provider. 

How do I find out who my vision insurance provider is?  

With most insurance providers, the details of your vision insurance are easily accessible. But first, you need to know who your provider is! 

If you’re not sure which company covers your vision insurance, here are some tips for finding your provider: 

  • If you have a provider through your employer, ask your HR department or check your employee handbook to find details of which provider handles your vision insurance. 
  • If you are a student and think you might be covered through your student benefits, reach out to the Student Union or ask your Resident Advisor for more information.  
  • If you have a vision insurance card, look for the company logo and check out their website, or call the customer service number to get the provider details.
