The cost of an eye exam and up to $175.00 will be considered for glasses or contacts (if currently wearing) provided there is no other vision plan/insurance coverage. Jones Foundation must pre-approve all services, and will not reimburse for any costs paid prior to application.
Application for this grant is limited to once a year and can be made for multiple children in the household. If previously awarded, application must be made at least one year from time of last authorization.
Seeking assistance for paying the costs associated with both the exam and glasses?
Complete and return the Grant Application for Eye Care to the office at least 5 business days prior to your child’s appointment for the director’s review.
Seeking assistance for paying only the costs associated with glasses or contacts?
Complete and return the Grant Application for Eye Care to the office PRIOR to ordering.
The Jones Foundation will not pay co-pays nor balances after insurance for eye exams. Additionally, should a vision plan/insurance pay more than our allowed amount of $175.00 for glasses/contacts, the Foundation will not pay the balance remaining.
