The University’s vision plan, administered by Superior Vision, covers eye examinations, prescription eyewear and contact lenses.
You have two options for vision coverage: the Basic Plan and the Enhanced Plan. You have the option to see a provider in the Superior Vision National network or an out-of-network provider; however, you’ll always pay more for out-of-network services.
The table below shows what you will pay for in-network care. Out-of-network care will be reimbursed after you submit a claim, up to plan limits. Copays for out-of-network services will be deducted from your reimbursement.
