State Vision Plan

EyeMed administers the vision benefits for the State Employee's Group Insurance Program. When plan participants utilize a network provider, the benefit levels are greater. Services provided by an out-of-network provider are paid at a lower benefit level.

Plan participants must submit an EyeMed Claim form for reimbursement when an out-of-network provider is used.
