About your Vision Benefits

UNE offers vision coverage through Cigna Vision to our full- and half-time faculty and professional staff. You now have the option to elect Cigna Vision coverage separately from medical insurance, which provides you with more flexibility in your benefit choices.

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.

Note: The Cigna medical plan will only cover one’s annual vision exam. An annual eye exam under the Basic or Enhanced medical plans will be covered in full. Under the HSA medical plan, an annual eye exam will be subject to the deductible. Additionally, Northeast Delta Dental offers a discount program to those who participate in the dental plan.
