Our Vision Care Program

The board of directors of the NYLHCA, alongside the National Labor Alliance of Health Care Coalitions (NLA), Endorses National Vision Administrators (NVA) for vision benefits. The NYLHCA will be passing along access to NLA preferred Vision Pricing, including:

  • Reduced administration fees
  • Waiver of minimum monthly administration fee
  • Discounted pricing tiers
  • Reduced fees for discount vision plans


Rick Renna and the rest of the NVA team are available to work with Member Funds to enhance their current plans and reduce cost.

Looking for a conflict-free vision benefits partner?

Since 1979, NVA has offered customizable, high-quality vision benefits to Union Health and Welfare Funds. As a US-based company with an AFSCME-represented workforce, our goals align with your Fund's goals. Why choose us?


Conflict Free Business Philosophy
NVA is independent, so our income comes purely from managing benefits, not selling eyewear. This ensures significant savings for our clients, since we are the only national vision administrator that does not profit from members spending more.


Smarter Network Access: Savings, Choice and Convenience
NVA negotiates aggressive discounts from our broad NYS and national network and pass through these savings to our clients and their members. Our network, which we own includes over 110,000 vision care access points nationwide. We offer a good mix of optometrists, ophthalmologists and opticians, from private practices to optical retailers, resulting in increased in-network utilization, freedom of choice and member satisfaction.


Added Value for You and Your Members
Our members also have access to our mobile app and our NVA Smart Buyer® program, a resource that helps people become smarter buyers of eyewear and eyecare, reducing costs for all. We also offer value-added discount programs for Lasik surgeries, hearing aids, contact lenses, and additional eye care and eyewear purchases.


Service That Never Sleeps
NVA provides 24/7/365 live support to serve members anytime. We resolve problems on the first call 99% of the time and have consistently received over 99% ratings for member satisfaction and client installation satisfaction for the past seven years.
