VISION CARE NOTICE:
As an employee of Horry County Schools, you have two choices for vision care insurance. Be very careful not to accidentally enroll in both plans if you only want one.
HCS United Healthcare (formerly known as Spectera): This coverage is offered as an alternative to the coverage offered through the State’s plan. Enrollment in this plan is deducted from your pay as an after-tax deduction. Click here for plan highlights.
EyeMed: This coverage is offered as part of your State benefits package. Click here to view the official information from PEBA and EyeMed.
During the annual open enrollment, you are allowed to enroll, cancel or change coverage in either plan. You may also enroll in and pay premiums for both plans if desired.
Be very careful not to accidentally enroll in both plans if you only want one. If you are enrolled in the HCS United Healthcare plan your enrollment will not be listed when you are logged into the State’s MyBenefits page.
Enrolling in both plans, on purpose or by accident, means you will be covered under both plans and pay both premiums during the following calendar year.
