The Plan offers you and your eligible dependents vision care benefits. These benefits are not insured and are paid solely by the Plan. You will save if you use a participating vision care provider. If you are an active covered participant under the Plan, you will be able to receive a covered eye examination and eyeglasses/contacts once every 12 months; or, if you are a dependent, once every 24 months. However, the Plan will not limit the number of vision examinations for your dependents who are younger than age 19.
If you pay for any out-of-pocket vision expenses to a provider that does not participate with the Benefit Fund’s Vision Plan, you will need the Vision Benefit Direct Reimbursement Form. In order to be reimbursed, this form needs to be filled out and sent to the Fund Office, along with your original itemized paid receipt.
