In response to the natural disaster that occurred in Louisiana, Davis Vision is capable and prepared to support members in the affected parishes that need eyeglasses or contacts regardless of past orders or frequency restrictions. Davis has experience in these emergencies and has a process in place to support these situations.
Process for Members When Requesting Replacement Eyewear
As is the standard process for members today obtaining Davis benefits, when a member goes to an in network provider (which most BCBS LA members do today), the provider will submit a real-time authorization request to Davis for the requested service.
If the member has already received eyewear within the timeframe per their benefits, the system will return a denial.
However, the provider will contact Davis and obtain an authorization to submit the claim under warranty with no cost to the member.
Note: For members that have not already received eyewear and this is their first time obtaining equipment, their claims would follow the standard process and be subject to the copays according to their benefits.
Due to the historic flooding in Ascension Parish and all over the state of Louisiana, the office at Trish Freeman Insurance Services is closed until further notice. Despite our best efforts, we are without power and the phone lines are down. We have suffered several inches of flooding inside the office but all employees are currently safe and dry. We will send out another email once the office is available to open again. We thank you for your business and hope everyone stays safe and dry during this state of emergency.
We promise to reopen as soon as possible. For now, the best way to reach us is via email:
