Covered employees in Breathitt, Clay, Floyd, Knott, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Owsley, Perry, Pike and Wolfe counties can contact EyeMed for the following support:
- Temporary adjustable glasses: If immediate materials are needed, call (866) 652-0018 to expedite shipping at no cost. These glasses enable individuals to adjust for different distances and switch focus for reading, computer and distance.

Related to Kentucky's State of Emergency, EyeMed will extend the period for premiums, co-payments, deductibles and other charges through August 31, 2022; not take action such as canceling policies or implementing rate increases until notice can be given; supply upon request a copy of a policy without charge; and apply in-network benefits to out-of-network claims.
