Effective October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010
Two vision plans are available, but the Kaiser vision plan is only available to employees and their family members who are enrolled in Kaiser medical through PCC.
New employees who are benefits eligible must enroll in their choice of vision plan on the first of the month following an initial 30-day waiting period. Changes to vision insurance elections can be made during the fall open enrollment period of each year. These changes become effective on October 1st of each year. Certain “qualified status changes” permit enrollment in vision plans mid-year. Consult with a benefits specialist for details.
The two vision plans available to PCC employees with benefits and their families are listed and compared below. The column headings are links to more detailed information on the plans. To receive more information on any or all of these plans, please fill out this Benefit Materials Request form. To enroll, please use the MyOEBB online enrollment system.
