Superior Vision Announces Agreement With Costco Optical

RANCHO CORDOVA, CA, (October 8, 2013) – Superior Vision, a leader in managed vision care, today announced that Costco Optical has signed an agreement to join Superior’s eye care provider network. This solidifies Superior Vision’s position as having the most diverse provider network nationwide, and gives members an additional valued optical retail access point. Members will be able to visit Costco Optical locations for their benefits beginning early 2014.

“We are thrilled to join forces with Costco to give our members such a well-respected, customer-focused network option,” said Zon Dunn, Vice President of Provider Relations, Superior Vision. “Costco is a leader in delivering excellent value, and their optical staff is highly knowledgeable about vision materials. We are working together to ensure that our members’ vision benefits experience is seamless and delivered with the excellent customer service for which both companies are known.”

Costco Optical’s 437 locations nationwide provide frames, prescription lenses, contact lenses, and a variety of lens options. Most Costco Optical locations have an Independent Doctor of Optometry (OD) in or near the optical department, ensuring that members have easy access to comprehensive eye exams. These ODs are contracted individually, and those who choose to join will be in-network just as are the materials from Costco Optical. Benefit coverage and allowances are the same at Costco as with other Superior Vision eye care providers.

“We are looking forward to our partnership with Superior Vision. Both companies share the same vision for exceptional service and quality,” said Denise Mogil, Director of Professional Services at Costco.

Superior Vision members are required to have a Costco membership to access materials through the optical department. However, no membership is needed to receive an exam from the OD.
