Your eyes not only affect how you see, but how you feel. Caring for your vision can lead to a better quality of life. Your eyesight impacts your performance at work, school, and home. When your vision health is at its best, you perform better in all aspects of your life.
Employees have the opportunity to elect vision coverage provided for a monthly premium through payroll deduction.

Eligible Dependents: Spouse and dependent children to age 26.
Effective Date: Coverage is effective the first day of the month following date of employment.

A qualifying event is marriage, divorce, death, birth or adoption of a child, or change in spouse’s job (e.g. if a spouse had medical insurance coverage with their employer and then accepted another position with an employer that did not offer insurance, the spouse could be added to The Company employees insurance).
You will need to complete an Enrollment/Change Form within 30 days of the qualifying event (birth/adoption of a child has a 60-day change period). If the change is due to spouse’s job, attach a letter from the spouse’s employer indicating when the coverage will end/begin.
In the case of divorce, a copy of the divorce decree will need to be provided. In the cases of marriage, a copy of the marriage license will need to be provided.

A: Members may see any vision care provider. However, contracted providers in our network have agreed to limit certain charges and provide additional discounts once the allowance has been reached.
Because we have no contract with non-network providers, members are responsible for all charges that exceed the out-of-network reimbursement.
