Vision Insurance

Note: See links to additional dental insurance information on the left.

The State of Illinois' vision insurance plan is provided to University of Illinois employees receiving benefits and their eligible dependents. The EyeMed plan is automatically provided at no cost to employees and their dependents who are enrolled in one of the health plans.

The effective date of coverage begins on the first day of employment. Dependent children are covered up to but not including age 26.

Enrollment of a newborn child is guaranteed within 60 days of birth, but not automatic. Health insurance enrollment forms must be completed and submitted to the benefits department within 60 days of the date of birth for the child to have vision coverage.
