Optical benefits are provided by United Healthcare Vision. Enrollment in these plans is automatic for ‘Employee Only’ coverage. However, if you need to add dependents to your Dental or Optical coverage, you must complete this in PeopleSoft during new hire enrollment, open enrollment, or 31 calendar days after a qualifying life event.
