Compare vision plans

If you are eligible for SEBB Program benefits, vision coverage is included for you and your eligible dependents at no cost to you. You and any enrolled dependents must be enrolled in the same SEBB vision plan.

Selecting a vision plan

If you are eligible for SEBB benefits, vision coverage is included for you and your eligible dependents; your employer pays the premium. You and any enrolled dependents must be enrolled in the same vision plan.

Before you select a vision plan, check with the plan to see if your vision provider is in the plan’s network. You can call the vision plan’s customer service.

How do the vision plans compare?

Before you enroll in a vision plan, use the tables below to get the details you need to help you decide or use the printable Vision benefits comparison.

For information on specific benefits and exclusions, refer to the vision plan’s certificate of coverage or contact the plan directly. The figures listed below show what you pay for in-network coverage, with the amount up to which you would be reimbursed for out-of-network services in parentheses. If anything in these charts conflicts with the plan’s Certificate of Coverage (COC), the COC takes precedence.

Routine eye exams are covered at 100 percent under any of the three plans. In general, frames are covered up to $150 every 24 months, and then 80 percent of the balance over $150.

Some vision plans have their own clinics, where you get the plan’s best price for services and hardware.
