Vision

You have two vision options to choose from. Both are administered by VSP.

  • The Base Plan [PDF] offers basic vision care and an allowance for eyeglass frames or contacts.
  • The Enhanced Plan [PDF] has a larger, more frequent allowance for frames and/or contacts, plus it covers additional eyeglass lens features.

You don’t need an ID card to use your Vision benefits. Providers in the VSP network use your Social Security number to determine your eligibility and plan benefits.

You can also decline vision coverage by not enrolling.
