Retirees

As a result of the implementation of the new vision program with Humana, Miami-Dade County is able to extend vision benefits to retirees who currently maintain medical coverage. During the enrollment period for 2021, eligible retirees can enroll themselves and other eligible dependents in the Miami-Dade County Humana Group Vision program. Benefits will be effective Jan. 1, 2021 and Humana will be offering a Standard and Enriched option.

If you do not enroll during the initial offering for 2021, you will not be able to enroll in the group vision plan in the future. To enroll, complete the enrollment form on page 3 of the newsletter that was mailed to you in late October and submit it to the Benefits Administration Unit (BAU) no later than Nov. 9.

Under either plan option, you and your enrolled dependents receive an annual comprehensive eye exam at no charge with a participating optometrist or ophthalmologist. Members may also receive a pair of glasses for a $10 copay from a special selection available at participating providers. Additional lens features, such as transition, progressive and ultraviolet coating, are also fully covered. Under the Enriched option, lenses and frames are available every plan year. Under the Standard option, lenses are available every year and frames are available every other year. Contact lenses or other frames are available as alternative benefits.

Both options allow you to use non-participating providers and be reimbursed according to the non-participating benefit schedule. However, use one of the plan’s in-network providers to receive the greatest savings.
