For Your BenefitFor as little as $3.27 a month, university employees can enroll in the state’s new vision insurance program.

First introduced last year, the vision program provides for an annual routine exam, allowances and discounts toward eyeglass frames and lenses or contact lenses, and a discount on Lasik/refractive surgery.

Many UT employees endorse the new benefit.

“As my vision has gotten weaker, the costs started going up, and I found I was having to look at less expensive frames and lenses to stay on a budget,” said Brenda Brown, assistant manager in the Department of Academic and Research Administrative Support at the UT Space Institute in Tullahoma.

Monthly premiums range from $3.27 to $16.84, depending on plan type and coverage options. Information on enrollment is available at and on the UT System website.
