- Plan comparison chart (Standard vs. Managed)
- When does coverage begin and when does it end?
Vision Plan decisions must remain in effect at least 18 months. You may make changes to your Vision Plan level of coverage only after this 18-month period.
Your first opportunity to change your Vision level of coverage will be the first open enrollment period or qualified status change following your 18-month mandatory wait period.
You are not required to choose a vision plan. Be sure to consider any other vision coverage available such as from a spouse’s plan.
The Standard Plan is processed by the health claims administrator. You may use any licensed provider in the Standard Plan, but may be required to file a claim for reimbursement.
Managed Care Plan
The Managed Care Plan, administered through Vision Service Plan (VSP), requires that you use a participating provider in order to receive the highest level of benefits.
