Vision Coverage

What to Know

The vision plan, administered by VSP, helps to keep your vision crystal clear by covering annual exams and lenses (with a small copayment for each). Plus, it covers a portion of the cost of contact lenses and frames.

How the Plan Works

The plan gives you access to a large network of VSP eye care professionals. You can also see out-of-network providers, but you’ll generally pay less when you see one in the VSP network. And if you have diabetic eye disease, glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration, you can receive additional care [PDF].
