Warby Parker Eyewear Now Available to People Enrolled in UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Plans

UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plan holders now have access to Warby Parker’s designer prescription eyewear either online at warbyparker.com, at nine locations in Texas or at more than 80 Warby Parker stores nationwide.

This marks the first time Warby Parker is accepting Medicare insurance. People enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans that include eyewear benefits through UnitedHealthcare Vision can purchase prescription eyewear from Warby Parker for little or no out-of-pocket cost, often for less than $50.

The expansion builds on an existing network relationship that provides people with employer-sponsored and individual UnitedHealthcare plans access to Warby Parker’s designer eyewear for only a copayment. UnitedHealthcare became the first insurance plan accepted by Warby Parker in 2017.
