State Vision Plan

EyeMed administers the vision benefits for the State Employee's Group Insurance Program. When plan participants utilize a network provider, the benefit levels are greater. Services provided by an out-of-network provider are paid at a lower benefit level.

Plan participants must submit an EyeMed Claim form (PDF 80 KB) for reimbursement when an out-of-network provider is used. Specific questions regarding the vision benefit can be found in the Certificate of Coverage (PDF 120 KB).
