Flexible Insurance Coverage

  • Linneo vision insurance is allowance-based and works just like a gift card. All you have to do is click the Linneo link during checkout at one our participating online retailers , and your remaining allowance is applied to your balance.

  • When you choose Linneo vision insurance, you get access to a wider variety of frames at prices lower than what you will find at your local optical store.

  • All of Linneo’s vision insurance plans include an eyewear allowance between $100 and $250. Need exam coverage? Choose a plan that also includes an exam allowance. Linneo offers plans with a separate exam allowance between $40 and $100.

Eyewear Savings Plan

  • Suppose you or your family simply need discounts on contact lenses or prescription and non-prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. In that case, you will benefit from our Eyewear Savings Plan.

  • The Eyewear Savings Plan from Linneo costs $12 per year for Subscribers and provides a 15% discount on eyewear from participating providers.

  • The Eyewear Savings Plan is ideal for young people who have aged out of their parent’s insurance or retirees without Medicare eyewear coverage.

Exclusively Online Retail Eyewear

  • When you choose one of Linneo’s vision insurance plans, you get access to discounted eyewear from SmartBuyGlasses, Lensabl, and Visibly.

  • When you choose Linneo’s Eyewear Savings Plan, you can access discounted eyewear from Lensabl and Visibly.

  • SmartBuyGlasses and Lensabl provide Linneo members with discounted contact lenses and prescription/non-prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. Visibly provides Linneo members with discounted contact lenses only.

  • The eyewear allowances in Linneo’s vision insurance plans are specifically designed to be used online. The prices of eyeglasses can be considerably lower online, sometimes as low as $7 per pair. A Linneo eyewear allowance can be used to buy a pair of eyeglasses with designer frames from one online retailer and a backup pair of $7 eyeglasses from a different online retailer. Then, the remaining allowance can be used to purchase contact lenses from a third online retailer.

  • If you’re looking for a large selection of frames, look no further. There are thousands of frames available from SmartBuyGlasses and Lensabl. There are designer brands at higher prices, private-label brands at lower prices, and different shapes and sizes to fit any face.

Eye Exams

  • Some of Linneo’s vision insurance plans also offer coverage for a comprehensive eye exam. Your exam allowance can be used anywhere. That’s right—anywhere. Unlike other insurance plans that require finding a participating provider, Linneo lets you get an exam from anywhere and reimburses you.

  • If you don’t need a comprehensive eye exam, but your prescription has expired, you can try the prescription renewal service offered by Lensabl and Visibly. Your exam allowance also covers it.

Convenient and Easy to Use

  • Shop for eyewear anywhere you have access to the Internet.

  • Take advantage of the latest and greatest in virtual frame try-on technology.

  • When you’re ready to checkout, look for the Linneo link on the checkout page. All you have to do is click the link and enter your name, date of birth, and zip code.

Advantages for Parents and Families

  • Give your children or dependents the eye care they need at an affordable price.

  • Children often lose or break their glasses. With Linneo, you access benefits that allow you to purchase multiple pairs of glasses per year. If a member of your family should break their glasses and you have part of your allowance left, that allowance can be used for replacement frames. With other plans, families are limited in the number of frames they can purchase per year.

  • Children’s prescriptions change quickly as they grow up. A $100 exam allowance from Linneo can be used multiple times in the same year if needed, there are no limitations on how many times you can see a doctor. Just look for the best price so that your allowance stretches as far as possible.

Advantages for Retirees on Medicare

  • Linneo’s vision insurance plans and Eyewear Savings Plan are perfect for those on Medicare without vision coverage.

  • Access convenient at-home eyewear shopping and telehealth services.

  • The Eyewear Savings Plan is only $12 per year for a 15% discount on eyewear. It’s a great low-cost option for people on a budget.

Advantages for Young Adults

  • Many young adults have outgrown their parent’s coverage and are in need of vision coverage.

  • Accidents happen. Don’t put yourself in a position where your glasses break, and you are without a replacement pair. Use Linneo to purchase an inexpensive backup pair of eyeglasses.

  • If you are already buying your eyewear online, you are missing out on getting the best possible prices with coverage from Linneo.
