Can I keep my Opticare plan if I lose my job?
If you’ve recently lost your job, you may be eligible to continue your health insurance, including your Opticare plan for up to 18 months with COBRA. Coverage will continue to apply to family members and dependents who were originally covered under your plan. If you enroll in COBRA, you’ll continue to have the same great coverage, but will have to pay the full premium of the plan, plus an administrative fee. You can compare the cost of COBRA against other health plans to see which options work best for you. To learn more about COBRA, visit https:// www.dol.gov/general/ topic/health-plans/cobra.
Are there new/extra precautions regarding COVID-19 that I should be aware of?

What is my deductible or Outof-Pocket Expenses:

- Scratch-resistant coating
- Anti-reflective coating
- Ultraviolet (UV) protection
- Progressive (no-line) lenses
- Specialty bifocal lenses
- Photochromic (Transitions) lenses
