Supplemental Vision (VSP)
The VSP Supplemental Vision Plan provides benefits for an eye exam and glasses or contact lenses annually. Payment for these benefits is made directly to the eye-care provider; this payment is in addition to your current vision coverage with Blue Cross/Blue Shield. See the VSP Informational Flyer for full details. It is highly recommended that you consider this policy only if you plan to use one of the listed network providers. To search for additional providers, refer to the VSP website: (http://www.vsp.com).
