VSP is a supplemental vision plan. Benefits include one vision examination and one set of corrective lenses per calendar year and one set of frames every other calendar year. There are additional benefits provided for dependent children through VSP’s KidsCare plan, such as an additional vision examination, impact resistant lenses, lens replacement annually or more often as needed and frames replaced annually with a copay.

With this vision plan, you can see any vision provider, but you will have lower out-of-pocket costs if you see a VSP provider.

This supplemental vision plan is offered through VSP.

See the Plan Brochure pdf for plan details.


You must meet the following requirements to be eligible for this plan:

For detailed information regarding who you can cover on this plan, see the Dependent Eligibility Grid (UWS 25) pdf .


You have 30 days from your date of employment or your newly benefits-eligible job to enroll yourself and eligible family members in VSP. Your coverage will begin on the first of the month on or following your eligibility date.

If you do not enroll in VSP or did not include dependents on your plan during your initial 30-day enrollment period, you may enroll during the Annual Benefits Enrollment period or if you have a qualifying life event. See Life Events for more information.

Once you are enrolled in VSP, you must remain enrolled for the calendar year.
