All eligible employees are covered by a comprehensive vision insurance plan with EyeMed. Vision insurance is bundled (comes with) with medical insurance and enrollment levels must match (single, two-person, or family). For employees without WSU medical insurance coverage, vision is only available as a voluntary election (see below).

Basic Vision Plan

The Basic Plan through EyeMed will automatically be provided to all eligible employees who are enrolled in a WSU medical plan. Note: If you are not interested in a higher level of vision coverage, no action is required. You will remain in the basic vision plan.

Enhanced Buy-Up Vision Plan

Employees have the option as a new employee or during Open Enrollment to upgrade to the Enhanced Buy-up Plan. This plan offers higher eyewear allowances and several lens options covered with no copay as part of the benefit.  If you elect the Enhanced Buy-up Plan you must remain in that plan for the full 2019 calendar year.
