Vision Insurance

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.

Voluntary Vision Plan

If you have not elected WSU medical insurance, you may enroll in the Voluntary Vision Plan (Basic or Enhanced Buy-Up) at the time of hire, during Open Enrollment, or upon a qualified Life Status Change Event.
