Vision Insurance

NCFlex Vision Plan


UNC Charlotte offers vision coverage through the State’s program NCFlex. EyeMed Vision administers this plan.

Core Wellness is available at no cost to all eligible employees if they enroll for coverage. It covers an annual eye exam for the employee with a $20 copy and includes discounts on materials.

Basic and Enhanced Plans allow you to cover dependents, include a comprehensive vision care plan, and provide a choice of glasses or contact lenses.

EyeMed members can also save 15% off retail price or 5% off the promotional price of LASIK. More details and important documents are available on the NCFlex website.


The cost to you depends on the plan level you choose and if you cover a spouse or dependent. View the current rate information.
