Vision

BJC offers vision coverage through VSP Vision Care, which features a large national network of vision providers.

Your vision coverage:

  • Covers an eye exam with a copayment for children up to age 18 twice a year and adults once a year
  • Pays a portion of the cost for member's contacts or eye-glass lenses once a calendar year
  • Pays a portion of the cost for children’s (up to 18) frames once a calendar year, and the cost of adult frames every other year
  • Provides a discount on laser vision correction
  • Note: an annual preventive vision exam is covered at 100 percent under the BJC Medical Plan, provided the service is received by an in-network provider.

To find a provider, visit VSP or call toll-free 800.877.7195.
