For Atrium Health Navicent Teammates | Greater Charlotte teammates, visit this page.

Atrium Health Navicent provides access to two Vision care options: 

  • Basic Plan requires you to pay more when you seek services, but also has lower premiums.
  • Standard Plan has higher premiums and also a higher level of benefits.  

UnitedHealthcare Vision is the vision care provider. With either plan, you have the freedom to use the services of any qualified eye care professional, in or out of the provider network.  
The benefit program allows children up to the age of 13 with UnitedHealthcare Vision coverage a second annual eye exam and new pair of glasses if their prescription changes 0.5 diopter or greater (contacts not included). Children’s eyesight can change quickly, and this enhancement provides important coverage for UHC plan participants.  
However, just as with Medical coverage, your costs are generally lower when you use in-network providers. To find a participating provider or get answers to questions, visit or call 1-800-638-3120.
