2015 Voluntary Vision Insurance Open Enrollment

Voluntary Vision Insurance Open Enrollment was January 1, 2015 through February 28, 2015. Employees must have a regular, benefits eligible appointment to participate. This is the only chance to cancel or enroll in coverage for this next year, with an effective date for changes of April 1, 2015. 

Following are key points relative to the vision coverage in 2015

  • The AVESIS plan design for coverage remains the same, however, the rates did increase for Employee/Child(ren) - $22.32 and Employee/Family - $28.98.

Employees presently enrolled in AVESIS coverage, and not interested in making changes, do not need to do anything to remain enrolled in 2015.
