The Optimizer aggressively pursues NUSIs when they cover a query. Covered columns can be specified anywhere in the query, including the select list, the WHERE clause, aggregate functions, GROUP BY clauses, expressions, and so on. Presence of a WHERE condition on each indexed column is not a prerequisite for using a NUSI to cover a query.
