Please note: The vision plan operates on a point of service plan year. This means that your available benefit is measured from the last time you used the benefit. For example, if you used the frame benefit on 12/1/2020 you are not eligible to use it again until 12/1/2021.

Who can be covered?

Eligible grad employees, their dependent spouses, domestic partners (both same and opposite sex), and children up to age 19.  No other family members are eligible for coverage under the plan.


The vision plan is FREE for eligible individuals and free for their families!


The EyeMed Vision insurance plan has 3 coverage options: single, single +1 person (you + either a spouse/partner OR child) and family (you + multiple dependents). 


You do not have to enroll in the dental plan to enroll in the vision plan.
