Insurance coverage for glasses

In my previous posts I described ordering my new glasses, and their arrival. There was one more detail to take care of: the insurance claim. Through work I have VSP for eye coverage. That covered my eye exam for the in-network optometrist. However, 39DollarGlasses is definitely out of network. For out of network glasses, my plan is supposed to cover $25 for lenses and $35 for frames. I wasn't sure how that was going to work since the site just list $39 for the glasses + $25 for the anti-reflective coating. 

After ordering my glasses I printed out a special insurance receipt from the 39DollarGlasses website. It split the $39 in half for the glasses, and listed the anti-glare. I submitted the form, and today a check arrived. They listed $19.50 for the frames (credited for $19.50) and $19.50 + $25 = $44.50 for lenses (credited at the maximum of $25), and nothing for the shipping. I was hoping that I would just get the full $60, but this is as good as I could reasonably expect.
