Vision Plan Open Enrollment

Management Services has opened the open enrollment period for BMA employees to select either the city’s VSP vision plan or the BMA’s United Healthcare (aka: Spectera) vision plan. You should be receiving a memo from Management Services soon. Be sure to read it carefully.

Here are some important points to know:

  • You may only enroll in one of the two plans (VSP or United Healthcare)
  • You may only enroll in either plan during this open enrollment period
  • You may not make mid-year changes to either plan, with the exception of qualified life events (birth, death, marriage, adoption)
  • You may submit a City Paid VSP Plan Enrollment Form to Management Services
