CIP Vision Plan

Vision coverage is provided at no additional cost to benefit recipients enrolled in any of the CIP health plans. All benefit recipients and enrolled dependent beneficiaries have the same vision coverage regardless of the health plan selected. All vision benefits are available once every 24 months from the last date used. Copayments are required.

The plan administrator for the vision benefit is EyeMed.  Requests for reimbursement for services provided by an out-of-network vision provider must be submitted on an EyeMed claim form [PDF, 134KB].
