Vision Plan

Murray State University offers Voluntary Vision Insurance administered by Principal.

Eligible employees include full-time employees actively working at least 37.5 hours per week. Employees must be enrolled for vision coverage before it can be offered to their dependents. Eligible dependents include the employee’s spouse and children.

Have your vision coverage needs met in three ways. Murray State University’s current medical plan covers eye exams and the dental plan offers other discounts. You might consider these options that are summarized below, while you consider enrolling in MSU’s vision plan.


$50 (one each 12 months)

Frames and Lenses

Frames: $100 (one set each 24 months)
Lenses: Two lenses (one pair) each 12 months
  • $50 for single vision
  • $75 for bifocal
  • $100 for trifocal
  • $150 for lenticular

Contact Lenses



 Vision Care covers a routine eye exam every 12 months, and one of the following:

  • A set of frames each 24 months and two lenses (one pair) each 12 months or
  • Two contact lenses (one pair). The maximum payment for a pair of contact lenses will be equal to the maximum payment for single vision lenses plus frames. For example: Single vision lenses $50 plus frames $100 would equal a contact lens benefit total of $150 for the first 12 months. The contact lens benefit total for the next 12 months, or second year, would equal $50. This is because the frame benefit of $100 is only payable once in any period of 24 consecutive months.
