Vision Care Plan

If you are enrolled in the Vision Care Plan as an active employee your coverage ends on the last day of the month in which you terminate. Under COBRA, a federal law, you and/or your enrolled dependents may continue to participate in this plan for up to 18 months. However, in addition to your current monthly premium, you will be required to pay a 2% administrative fee. You will receive further information from Crosby Benefit Systems. Please note, even if you enroll in a Princeton University retiree vision service plan, you will still receive COBRA information from Crosby Benefit Systems. If you do enroll in a Princeton University retiree vision services plan, you may disregard the Crosby information as it relates to continuing your employee vision insurance.

At the time you retire, you may elect to participate in a retiree vision care plan for yourself and your eligible dependents. The plan offered is administered by Vision Service Plan (VSP) and is similar to the employee vision plan. To enroll, you must complete the “Princeton Healthcare Election Form” by the last business day of the month in which you are employed by the University. You may also elect coverage during the Annual Open Enrollment period each year. Once enrolled, you may not terminate your retiree vision coverage mid-year.
