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.

Plan provision* In-network Out-of-network
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.
