• mtsd Benefits  
    NVA - National Vision Administrators   

     
    Your annual routine eye exam is covered under your Horizon medical plan.  In addition, you are eligible to be reimbursed up to $300 for vision hardware (glasses or contacts) every two years through National Vision Administrators (NVA).
     
    In the linked forms below, please find a welcome letter along with information on your new vision plan. 

     

    ID CARDS

    You will not be receiving ID cards.  You can print your own ID card by logging onto the NVA website, www.e-nva.com,  and registering with a USER ID and password.   Please see link above for “NVA-Member Web Registration and NVA Portal User Guide.”  Page 2-5 of the document will give you instructions on how to Register.   Page 9 of the document will provide you with instructions on how to print your ID card.    

    VISION HARDWARE BENEFITS

    Your vision hardware benefits will be the same as your current plan.  You will get $300 coverage every 2 years. See link above for NVA Benefit Summary.   If you use a participating NVA provider, you will receive your hardware at the NVA contracted rates, and you will get $300 taken off the total price.   If you use a non-participating provider, you will pay 100% up front, and you can submit for a $300 reimbursement.

    Again, please note that the new NVA plan is a HARDWARE  plan only.   To get coverage for your annual routine eye exam, you must use a participating provider in Horizon BCBSNJ.  You can ask your provider for a prescription which you can bring to a participating NVA provider to purchase the hardware.
