Vision

The Whitfield County Schools Vision Plan with EyeMed 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 regardless of their student status.
