VSP - vision care for life

What is VSP?

VSP provides vision care insurance to approximately 80 million people globally. It was formed in 1955 by a group of optometrists in Oakland, California, and quickly became a national provider. In 2007 it went international and VSP (Vision Service Plan) became VSP-Global. It is currently the largest vision care company in the United States.

Can I Use VSP at Cove Eyecare?

Yes! Our eye care clinic accepts VSP as an Out-Of-Network (OON) provider. When you book your appointment or check in, let our receptionist know you would like to use VSP.

Your eye exam will be covered by VSP payment plus a co-pay. When you purchase eyewear at our onsite optical, you will only be charged the amount which is over and above VSP’s coverage for whatever you buy, because we apply your VSP allowances towards the cost of any eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Please let us know if you have medical insurance too, since we may be able to apply that to your eye exam, maximizing your VSP balance toward your purchase of eyeglasses or contact lenses.

How Do I Bill VSP for My Appointment?

There are 2 ways for a VSP patient to get coverage for appointments and eyewear at Cove Eyecare. You can either…

  1. Following the guidelines on this VSP Cost and Coverage page, pay for your appointment and eyewear purchases up front, and submit the bill to VSP for reimbursement using their online submission form here, OR
  2. Let us know you would like us to file your claim, and we will take care of the rest. Co-pays will need to be paid upfront.

Note: Not all VSP plans cover OON practices, but we can help you find out if yours does! Contact us now. To allow us to access your VSP plan to determine your benefits and obtain authorization, you will be asked to provide the following information:

  • Patient ID or last 4 digits of SSN
  • Date of Birth

In order to complete your VSP claim, our office may require additional information from you, including:

  • Guarantor name and date of birth

Anything Else I Should Know?

Although we accept VSP, Cove Eyecare is not a VSP Network Provider. We do not necessarily use a VSP lab, we are not listed on the VSP website, and we are not subject to the eye exam restrictions, frame lines limitations or other contract rules set forth by VSP.
