VDT (Eye exam and eyeglass/contact) program is ending
Updated On: Jan 15, 2019
January 15, 2019 - In case you didn’t know, our current contract contains a vision program. Article 9 Section 18 allows for eye examinations and eyeglasses/contacts for those using computers. The agency covers the amount of the exam up to $65, and the cost of eyeglasses/contacts up to $200. You are also given administrative time not to normally exceed 2 hours for all matters.
Unfortunately, the agency is attempting to unilaterally eliminate this program. Please see the contract and form SSA-4067 for further instructions. This is something you may want to act on sooner rather than later before the program ends.
