About your Vision Benefits

UNE offers vision coverage to our full- and half-time faculty and professional staff. The primary insurance benefit is offered through your health care election. Health and vision benefits are directly linked so that the level of vision coverage is based on the health plan you elect. Additionally, Northeast Delta Dental offers a discount program to those who participate in the dental plan.

Once enrolled in benefits, we recommend that you regularly review your contact information (mailing address, email, and phone number) with elected insurance carriers to make sure it is up-to-date.


Vision benefits are included as part of your health plan when you elect our health coverage.
