ABB OneBill Customer

With the re-brand of PEN to ABB OneBill, does this mean that my ABB distribution statement will be combined with my ABB OneBill monthly statement?

If your ABB distribution and lab invoices are separate today, they will remain separate with no changes. To gain efficiency, we would love for you to add to your ABB OneBill consolidated billing statement; otherwise you will continue to receive these separately. Simply complete an Vendor Account Transfer Form and an ABB OneBill Customer Success team will take care of the rest!

What is ABB OneBill, formerly part of the Primary Eyecare Network (PEN)?

ABB OneBill is a consolidated billing service that offers customers access to an array of vendors (frames & contact lens distributors, laboratory services, business services, equipment, ophthalmic products, etc.) and the time-saving convenience of having all of your billing consolidated into a single monthly statement. Customers enjoy an easy payment structure/system with flexible payment options and the ability to pay at the click of a button.

What changes will Primary Eyecare Members be experiencing beginning April 1, 2021?

With the rebrand of PEN to ABB OneBill, the legacy PEN membership may see changes to the fees incurred today. Existing customers will also experience an enhanced portfolio of vendor-partners and incentives, online account access, individualized support, and consultation through the ABB OneBill Customer Success team.

Does my account have to use ABB Optical Group (SCL and Lab) to be an ABB OneBill customer?

While we would love every customer to be an ABB Optical Group customer, there are no requirements to be a customer of other ABB businesses.

What does it cost to be a customer?

There is no direct cost to be an ABB OneBill customer. You can potentially decrease your monthly service fee percentage by maximizing your monthly total billings. We encourage you to explore our portfolio of vendors. Keep in mind, the more vendors you consolidate, the more potential savings of time and efficiency you achieve. Please speak with an ABB OneBill Customer Success team at 800.444.9230 to guide you through all the services and savings you will get by becoming a customer. You may also email questions to onebill@abboptical.com.

What is the ABB OneBill consolidated billing service fee structure?

ABB Contact Lens and ABB Labs billings will not be assessed any service fees.
