Vision Coverage

Superior Vision Services Plan

You are offered two vision plans through Superior Vision Services* — the Basic Plan and the Enhanced Plan. You may choose to enroll yourself and any eligible dependents in one of the vision plans, whether or not you or your dependents are enrolled in the health plan. If you choose dependent vision coverage, and dependent children are also enrolled in the medical plan, the dependent children enrolled in the vision plan must match those enrolled in the health plan. Please note that you can enroll or change your coverage only when you or a dependent first becomes eligible, during the annual open enrollment period, or if a dependent becomes ineligible.   Mid-year changes to your vision coverage elections are not allowed even if you pay your premiums on an after-tax basis.
