Vision

Under the VSP Choice Plan, you can use any licensed vision provider you choose, but you’ll pay less when you use a VSP provider. If you use a non-VSP provider, you have to pay your bill in full, and VSP will reimburse you based on a schedule of benefits.

As a reminder you can use Health Account credits to help pay these vision care costs.

To find a VSP provider in your area, go to VSP’s website or call 1-800-877-7195.
