Heritage Vision Plan at Urban Optiques
Let Urban Optiques and Heritage Vision Plan help you take care of your vision and look fantastic at the same time in great designer eyewear and expertly-fitted contact lenses.
As a Heritage Vision Plan participant and provider, Urban Optiques provides you with quality vision care, a wide-range of stylish designer eyewear and the personal attention that can only come from an independent Heritage Vision Plan provider.
Like Heritage Vision Plan, Urban Optiques is also a local, independent Metro-Detroit based business. This makes Urban Optiques particularly proud to support and participate in Heritage Vision Plans -- the country's only "Made-in-Detroit" vision insurance plan.
Founded in Detroit in 1975 by George P. Barnes, Jr., Heritage is known for superb vision care service. Heritage Vision Plans has the distinction of being Michigan's first African-American owned full service optometric dispensary and is the only such organization to hold a State of Michigan Alternative Financing Delivery System Certificate of Authority.
This designation allows Heritage Vision Plans to offer managed vision care plans on a fully insured basis providing vision care service to employees and retirees of major corporations in the auto industry; local and state governments and the private sector.
Heritage Vision Plan maintains a national network of the highest quality vision care and optical providers, including independent optometrists and national chains. Heritage providers are board certified and state licensed ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians.
Depending on your employer's particular Heritage Vision Plan, Heritage vision insurance benefits vary from person-to-person. The best way to determine exactly what your Heritage benefit will be is to contact us or check your benefit on the Heritage website. Or, if you already know your Heritage Vision Plan benefit, you can schedule an eye exam now.
