Effective July 1, 2014, RCUH employees and their dependent(s) who are HMSA members will receive an updated Vision Coverage Code to include the Pediatric Vision Update. In order to comply with the Affordable Care Act – Health Care Reform, the benefit allows covered dependents under the age of nineteen (19) years old to receive services from a participating provider with no annual dollar limit and services from a nonparticipating provider with no service limit.
Therefore, HMSA will issue new cards to their members with the updated vision coverage code during mid-June, prior to July 1, 2014. Please click here to view HMSA’s Special Vision Care Benefits Rider Summary of Benefit Changes notice. This is the only change to HMSA’s health insurance plans.
