Vision Insurance

Agnes Scott College's vision-insurance plan provides employees and their dependents access to vision-care benefits. Employees in the following employment classifications are eligible to participate in the dental insurance plan:

*Regular full-time employees
*Regular half-time employees

Eligible employees may participate in the vision-insurance plan subject to all terms and conditions of the agreement between Agnes Scott and the insurance carrier. The premium is deducted from an employee's paycheck on a monthly pre-tax basis, unless the employee requests otherwise in writing. If enrolled, insurance will become effective on the first day of the month after the date of hire unless the date of hire is the first of the month, in which case, benefits become effective that day.

Details of the vision-insurance plan are described in the Summary Plan Description (SPD). An SPD and information on cost of coverage will be provided in advance of enrollment to eligible employees. Contact the Office of Human Resources for more information about vision-insurance benefits.

Agnes Scott College reserves the right to modify, change or discontinue the vision-insurance program at any time.
