UnitedHealth Care Vision Plan

HCEA’s current vision program is provided by United Healthcare (UHC).  Open Enrollment runs each year from June 1st through June 30th. During this time HCEA members can enroll in the program. Members already enrolled can make changes to their plan.  Current plan participants that do not need to make any changes in their coverage will be automatically renewed.

Please complete and return both enrollment forms:

Changes include:

  • Coverage Plan Changes (for example:  changing from a Spousal Plan to a Family Plan)
  • Name & Address Changes
  • Cancellation
  • Change in Status (for example:  Marriage, Birth of New Child, Adoption, etc.).  Please note, during the regular policy year, you have a 30 day window from the date of change in status to make a coverage plan change.  For instance, you get married and want to add your spouse to your coverage.  You have 30 days to contact us and add the spouse.  After 30 days, you will have to wait until the Open Enrollment period to make the change.

For more information on vision coverage, please review the following brochures or visit the UHC website at MYUHC.
