These discounts are only available through a Cigna Vision network eye care professional. Stated discounts cannot be used in conjunction with other discounts, promotions or prior orders. Network eye care professionals are independent contractors solely responsible for your routine vision examinations and products.

1. The Cigna Vision Network Savings program offered through Healthy Rewards is a discount program. Some programs are not available in all states and programs may be discontinued at any time. If your Cigna plan includes coverage for any of these services, this program is in addition to, not instead of, your plan coverage. Discount programs are separate from plan benefits. A discount program is NOT insurance, and you must pay the entire discounted charge directly to the participating eye care provider.
2. Provider participation is 100% voluntary. Please check with your eye care professional for any discount offer.
3. Select frames may not be available for savings.
4. Regional pricing and availability may vary depending on your location. Check with your Cigna Vision network eye care professional for details.
