Vision Plan Rates

Vision Plan Rates

You and MIT share in the cost of your vision plan coverage. If you enroll in coverage, your share will be paid with before-tax dollars that are deducted each pay period. 

Vision Plan Rates as of January 1, 2018

Your cost depends on the coverage tier you choose (Individual; Employee + Spouse/Partner; Employee + Child(ren); or Family), as well as your employment category.

In April 2018, all monthly paid MIT faculty, staff, graduate students and fellows will transition to a semimonthly (twice-monthly) pay schedule. See details.

Family $8.50 $3.92 $8.50

Domestic Partnership: About Insurance and Your Taxes

MIT's policy is the same for domestic partners as it is for married spouses and their eligible dependent children. You and MIT share the cost of coverage for your spouse/partner and/or any eligible dependent children. You should be aware, however, that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) imposes certain financial and tax regulations on health insurance costs in domestic partnerships. Read more below.
