BJC Employee Vision Discount Program 2018

BJC offers a vision discount program to all BJC employees and their dependents through the Barnes Eyecare Network (BECN).  BJC employees are automatically eligible for the discounts and do not need to enroll. 

         The provider network includes over 150 ophthalmologists and optometrists conveniently located for most employees.

         You can obtain significant savings off retail prices on high-quality services and products--with no limit on the number of purchases.

         No premiums are required.  You pay only for services and products you receive.

         To obtain discounted eyeware and supplies, show the BECN provider your BJC HealthCare ID or the Barnes Eyecare Network ID card at the time of your visit. 

         Preventive well eye exams will be covered at 100% for employees and residents and their dependents who are currently enrolled in the BJC CIGNA medical plans (Choice and Choice Plus).  Show the provider your BJC HealthCare ID card: the provider will file the claim for you and CIGNA will pay the provider for the preventive well eye exam. 

         If you are not enrolled in the BJC CIGNA medical plan, you are entitled to a vision exam for $55.00.  You pay the provider for the eye exam at the time of service.  Additional testing can be performed if needed at additional cost.
