Vision Care Benefits
The Con Edison Retiree Health Plan provides vision care benefits for you and your eligible dependents
The company has arranged with participating providers in New York to supply vision care services at no cost to you. Services are provided at no cost only if you receive all services—an eye examination, lenses, and frames—from the same provider.
Although Con Edison currently sponsors the Retiree Health Program, the information above does not alter the company’s right to change or terminate the program at any time due to changes in laws governing employee benefit plans, the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code, Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or for any other reason. The company is not obligated to contribute any fixed amount or percentage of program costs.
