The Effingham County Schools Vision Plan with MetLife provides a benefit for an exam, either contact lenses or eyeglass lenses, and frames. If you see an in-network provider, you pay a copay for your standard eye exam / lenses, and the plan pays a benefit of up to $130 for frames, and contact lenses. Additional copays apply for eyeglass lens options. Dependent children can be covered to age 26.
Access www.metlife.com/vision to locate provider network information. Select the VSP Choice Network.
With the MetLife Vision Plan, you may visit any vision provider. However in order to maximize your MetLife vision benefit, we encourage you to visit an in-network provider. Participating vision provider information can be found on the Resources page.
