Why Choose VSP?
Vision care is a very important health benefit. Regular eye care can prevent or lessen the severity of a number of serious medical conditions. More than 30 medical conditions, ranging from glaucoma to diabetes, can be detected during a routine eye examination. Founded in 1955, VSP began providing high quality, complete eye care services to members. Today, VSP is one of the largest HFP eye care providers in California. VSP’s provider network includes thousands of optometrists and ophthalmologists at many locations, providing over 5,8000 points of access throughout California.
How the Plan Works
Simply contact a VSP preferred provider. If you do not have a list of VSP Healthy Families Program providers, call VSP’s Customer Service Department at 1-800-877-7239, or write to:
VSP Customer Service
P.O. Box 997100
Sacramento, CA 95899-7100
When making an appointment, identify yourself as a VSP member through the Healthy Families Program and provide the subscriber's identification number. The participating provider will contact VSP to verify eligibility and plan coverage. At your appointment, your provider will provide an eye examination and determine if eye wear is necessary.
You pay only a $5 or $10 co-payment to the provider for the eye exam and a $5 or $10 co-payment for glasses. The provider will bill VSP directly for covered services (you may be charged extra for non-covered cosmetic options). If you elect contact lenses, a $5 or $10 co-payment will be required for the eye exam. All VSP preferred providers provide both eye examinations and eye wear, providing a convenient “one stop” means of obtaining eye care services. Patient satisfaction is guaranteed when services are obtained from a VSP preferred provider.
