Overview

This vision insurance plan is offered through VSP. Benefits include one vision examination, one set of corrective lenses per calendar year and one set of frames every other calendar year. Additional benefits are provided through VSP’s Laser Vision Care and KidsCare programs (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. See the Plan Brochure in the Forms & Resources section below for plan details.

Enrollment

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.
