In order to access vision care benefits, simply contact your VSP participating doctor to make an appointment. Identify yourself as a VSP patient. Your Social Security number is your VSP identification number. The VSP participating doctor will obtain the necessary authorization.
All full-time employees are eligible for one free eye exam every year without signing up for VSP. This benefit covers only the employee and not his/her spouse or dependent(s).
Reminder: Do not file your routine eye exam under your health insurance. Our vision is through the Vision Service Plan.
You may add dependents to your insurance either during Open Enrollment or if they lose coverage due to a life qualifying event.
Dependents are defined as legal spouse (based on the Virginia definition of marriage) and children under age 26, by birth, marriage, legal custody/guardianship or adoption. Dependent children are covered to the end of the month they reach age 26.
Life Qualifying Events are defined by the following: Marriage, Divorce, Birth, Legal custody or Adoption, Death, or Loss of insurance coverage. The Benefits Office must be notified in writing within 31 days of the Life Qualifying Event.
