If you choose not to enroll in the State Vision Plan, you have another option. The Vision Care Discount Program is available with no premiums. You do not have to enroll in any health plan, including the State Health Plan, to use it. The program provides discounts for:
Routine, comprehensive eye exams; and
Eyewear except for disposable contacts.
You cannot use this program and State Vision Plan benefits at the same time. Plus, you do not file claims. Ask your provider if he gives discounts through this program before your appointment.
