What is EyeMed Vision care?
EyeMed Vision care is available to all benefit eligible faculty and staff on a voluntary basis; postdoctoral fellows are not eligible. This means that you pay 100% of the premiums. You have the choice of the EyeMed BASIC option, which offers discounts on hardware and contact lenses, or the EyeMed ENHANCED option, which also offers yearly eye exams, frames every 12 months, and more. Annual vision exams offered by EyeMed ENHANCED are in addition to the exams offered by Yale's medical plans.
If you participate in a healthcare flexible spending account, you will be able to submit claims for any out-of-pocket expenses related to your vision program. The monthly contribution is not an FSA eligible expense. EyeMed offers an attractive benefits design at an affordable price.
