Schneider Electric offers you a vision plan, administered by Spectera, that provides coverage for a vision exam, as well as corrective lenses and frames, each year. If you choose to enroll in the vision plan, you pay 100% of the cost of coverage.
The vision plan features a network of participating providers, and you pay less when you use an in-network vision care provider. You can go out-of-network and then get reimbursed for up to the allowance amount.
See the chart below for a summary of the vision plan coverage.
|Frequency of coverage||Exam, lenses, and frames once every calendar year (resetting in January of every year)|
|You pay copayments / Plan pays up to the allowance below, you pay the rest|
|Exams||$10 copayment||Up to $60 allowance|
|Lenses||$25 copayment||$50 to $90 allowance depending on lens type|
|Frames||$175 frame allowance||Up to $70 allowance|
|Contacts (in lieu of frames and lenses)||$25 copayment; $175 allowance||Up to $175 allowance|
* Coverage allows for one pair of eyeglasses or contacts each year, but not both.
