Coverage from Vision Service Plan (VSP) features a large network of vision providers, including more than half of the private-practice eye doctors in the United States. In addition, many vision service providers at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University are in the VSP Network.
VSP Plan Highlights
- Covers a well vision exam with a copayment for child(ren) up to age 18 twice a year, and adults once a year
- Pays a portion of the cost for your contacts or eye-glass lenses once a 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
To find a provider, visit VSP or call toll-free 800.877.7195.
VSP does not issue ID cards. The network provider needs only your social security number to verify your benefits and submit claims.
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.
