CEC understands that vision plan members may encounter sales promotions (such as “two-for-one sales”) or steep discounts offered by some of our optical providers. As is true of most vision plans, your CEC vision plan is not intended for use in conjunction with these types of offers. In general, providers will allow only the use of your CEC vision benefit or the sales promotion (the sale price or discount).
IMPORTANT: Reimbursements are processed within a few weeks from the date we receive your electronic out-of-network claim form. For questions about your Member ID number or eligibility, please contact CEC at 888-254-4290.
