Vision Insurance

Vision coverage is available to all state and higher education employees and dependents. You must pay 100 percent of the premium if you elect this coverage. Two options are available — a basic plan and an expanded plan. Both plans offer the same services, including:

  •  Annual routine eye exam
  • Frames
  • Eyeglass lenses
  • Contact lenses
  • Discount on LASIK/refractive surgery

Davis Vision offers some additional benefits, based on the plan you choose, including:

  • Zero ($0.00) copay for single vision, bifocal, trifocal or lenticular lenses purchased at an in-network location.
  • Free pair of eyeglass frames from any Davis Vision’s “The Exclusive Collection”, which includes “Fashion, Designer and Premier” Selections under the in-network Expanded Plan.
  • Free pair of “Fashion Selection” eyeglass frames from Davis Vision’s “The Exclusive Collection” under the in-network Basic Plan. “Designer” and “Premier” Selections have $15 and $40 copays respectively.
  • Free pair of frames at Vision works retail locations.
  • 40% discount off retail under the in-network Expanded Plan and 30% discount off retail under the in-network Basic Plan for an additional pair of eyeglasses, except at Walmart, Sam’s Club or Costco locations.
  • 20% discount off retail cost of an additional pair of conventional or disposable contact lenses under the in-network Expanded Plan.
  • One year warranty for breakage of most eyeglasses.

The Basic and Expanded plans are both managed by Davis Vision. In-network and out-of-network benefits are available. You will receive the maximum benefit when visiting a provider in Davis Vision’s network.

As with other voluntary products, the state's vision insurance is an employee pay-all option. This means the state does not pay any part of the premium. Members are responsible for the full premium.
